    The design of the STV is described. The STV system consists of two parts: the remote platform (RP) and the mobility/RSTA Module (MOB/RSTA). The RP consists of the carrier base and the remote control electronics that provide an interface to all systems on the STV and the communication system. It is based on an off-the-shelf Polaris six-wheel-drive, Ackerman-steered all-terrain vehicle that can exce... View full abstract»

    The fundamentals of fractal geometry are reviewed, and its application to the millimeter-wave radar detection of stationary targets in a clutter background is described. First, high-range-resolution (HRR) profiles are used to determine the fractal interpolation functions needed to create fractal signatures. The fractal dimension is then determined for these signatures. On the basis of the value of... View full abstract»

    The spurious scattering mechanisms of a compact range, which cause spurious signals as well as the desired plane wave to illuminate the test zone, are addressed. It is shown that an accurate estimation of the direction-of-arrival and amplitude of spurious signals in a compact range is beyond the resolution available from the Fourier transform. An estimation technique based on autoregressive (AR) m... View full abstract»
