Herein we have outlined a framework for investigation into the feasibility of using an airship equipped with a GMTI radar payload to provide persistent wide area surveillance sufficient to monitor vehicle and personnel movement on the ground. A study and analysis needs to be performed in order to determine the system requirements and the feasibility of modifying a currently existing radar system to adequately perform the required functions. This has described a methodology for determining if and how, existing airborne or ground-based MTI radar systems could be modified to perform these functions.
