An image feature-based space time processing (IFSTP) algorithm is introduced to effectively detect ground moving targets in clutter and jamming via airborne radar. This new approach exploits the distinct image features of targets and interference signals in the angle-Doppler domain. An image segmentation algorithm, referred to as region growing, extracts targets and interference features in the angle-Doppler domain, and an innovative block-size detection algorithm discriminates between moving targets and interference based on the extracted image features. The proposed IFSTP algorithm is particularly suitable for detecting ground moving targets in highly nonhomogeneous clutter environments, without any requirement for clutter covariance estimation.
