    The AirWASP framework leverages enabling technologies to aid in persistent surveillance missions onboard a manned aircraft. While the system as described was developed to fulfill the needs of the Gotcha II program, the system's versatility and modular design provide an abundance of technology options through framework design that will accommodate growing computing needs and can leverage technologi...

    This paper presented a concise review of the SAR image formation options amenable to large scene sizes and staring applications. The need for nonlinear flight trajectories limits our algorithmic options to DBS, PFA, and CBP, with digital spotlighting used by each to mitigate difficulties with large scene sizes. An analysis of the computational cost of each algorithm was developed, and they were co... View full abstract»

    This study started with a data set that leveraged the latest autofocusing methods to obtain the cleanest radar data set appropriate for generating large SAR imagery over a 5-km spot. The authors intended to spotlight individual smaller nonmoving targets within the larger area; however, the images appeared blurred and varied greatly when generated by different passes of the circular SAR radar syste...

    This article evaluates the three-dimensional (3-D) location information provided by spotlight-mode circular synthetic aperture radar (SAR). The circular synthetic aperture refers to a single circular flight path of 360° azimuth at a constant altitude and broadside squint angle. The motivating operational concept is persistent wide-area surveillance from a single airborne radar platform. The... View full abstract»

  • Rethinking vehicle classification with wide-angle polarimetric SAR

    Wide-angle SAR presents an opportunity to explore new methods for CV classification. Polarization features are of particular interest and various examples of wide-aperture images using flight-collected and simulated data are shown to emphasize how odd and even reflectors are revealed in the imagery. Using the well-known frequency parameter from high-frequency scattering models and the Krogager pol... View full abstract»

    The authors have defined an approach for detecting and tracking moving vehicles with Gotcha radar systems. Our approach exploits tracker feedback to address challenges for detection, false alarm mitigation, geolocation, and tracking in an urban surveillance environment. The authors presented a mathematical framework for processing multichannel SAR data in order to mitigate the combined effects of ... View full abstract»
