Stepped Frequency Imaging Radar Simulation

Pagination or Media Count:
In this thesis, a technique involving Stepped Frequency and Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar ISAR processing have been employed to develop two-dimensional radar images of an aircraft target. Radar returns from prominent scatterers of various parts of the target will be processed and displayed. The processing is a combination of two high-resolution processes development of a high-range resolution HRR profile in slant range using the stepped frequency waveform, and the development of a high-resolution profile in cross-range using the ISAR technique. With these two techniques complementing each other, images of targets dominant scatterers can be extracted , processed and displayed. With intelligence databases built over time, precise recognition of target type can be identified.
