This tutorial provides a brief overview of space-time adaptive processing (STAP) for radar applications. We discuss space-time signal diversity and various forms of the adaptive processor, including reduced-dimension and reduced-rank STAP approaches. Additionally, we describe the space-time properties of ground clutter and noise-jamming, as well as essential STAP performance metrics. We conclude this tutorial with an overview of some current STAP topics: space-based radar, bistatic STAP, knowledge-aided STAP, multi-channel synthetic aperture radar and non-sidelooking array configurations.
