Abstract:

The objectives of this research program are to study the feasibility and to develop schemes for using an ultra-wideband or short-pulse UWBSP radar to 1 detect a target in a sea clutter environment and 2 identify airborne targets. For the first topic, we have conducted a theoretical and experimental study of the transient scattering of a short pulse from sea surfaces of various models and the application of the E-pulse technique to detect a target flying above a disturbed sea surface. For the second topic, we have developed the schemes of target identification using the E-pulse technique, the neural network method, the time-domain imaging and some other related methods. This report summarizes many significant results which may be useful in the design of future UWBSP radars.
