Abstract:

SAR resolution and polarization performance studies for ATR algorithms have been the source of recent attention. Thorough investigations are often hindered by the lack of rigorously consistent high-resolution full-polarimetric signature data for a sufficient number of targets across requisite viewing angles, articulations and environmental conditions. While some evaluative performance studies of high-value structures and conceptual radar systems may be effectively studied with limited field radar data, to minimize signature acquisition costs, pose-independent studies of ATR algorithms are best served by signature libraries fashioned to encompass the complexity of the collection scenario.
