Abstract:

This article considers the problem of developing three- dimensional 3-D spatial representations of objects by processing radar measurements of that object. The measurements that are wideband have high-range resolution and that are collected across wide-angular apertures in both azimuth and elevation are of particular interest. The goal is to provide 3-D spatial reconstructions that can be used first to visualize the object along with radar features that characterize the object such as polarization features and, later, can be used in automatic target-recognition applications. Thus, visualization provides a mechanism for human-aided target recognition and also serves as a qualitative means for demonstrating the utility of extracted feature sets for automatic target recognition.
