Abstract:

This technical report describes the use of the burst derivative measure in motion compensation ISAR algorithms for estimating both the slant-range translational motion and rotational kinematic quantities of an uncooperative airborne target. Tests have been performed on simulated as well as actual ISAR data using both a Sun 4 SPARCstation 2 and a parallel processing transputer array. Preliminary results indicate that the burst derivative measure gives significant improvement in processing speed over the traditional entropy measure presently employed.
