Abstract:

Space-time adaptive processing STAP is a signal processing technique for detection of moving targets buried in ground clutter by means of a moving air- or spaceborne radar. No future military air- or spaceborne radar will be designed without this feature. This Lecture Series gives a comprehensive overview of the broad field of STAP, starting with fundamentals, clutter characteristics, application to synthetic aperture radar SAR, and issues in over-the-horizon radar OTH. Beside the principles and underlying fundamentals special aspect are covered, such as economic STAP architectures, limiting effects, algorithms for real-time processing, and special applications such as bistatic radar configurations and terrain scattered jamming.
