This paper presents a wide area traffic monitoring experiment under real conditions, using the scan-MTI mode of the airborne radar sensor PAMIR. This flexible GMTI (Ground Moving Target Indication) mode was designed in order to rapidly monitor wide areas for moving targets. The scan operation enables the detection of targets from different aspect angles with a high revisit rate. The parameters (e.g., radial velocity, signal-to-noise ratio, and positioning accuracy) of the detected vehicles are investigated and compared to the expected theoretical GMTI performance. It will be shown that the scan-MTI mode is particularly adapted to perform an efficient wide-area traffic monitoring.
