Abstract

Two phenomena that degrade the performance of ground moving target detection (GMTI) capabilities of Space Based Radars (SBR) are (i) range foldover effects associated with multiple data points originating from different range bins due to the radar pulse stream and (ii) earth's rotational effect on SBR generated clutter Doppler frequency. The degradation in performance due to these phenomena is quantified in this paper and methods to minimize their effect are discussed. In this context, transmit pulsing schemes involving waveform diversity are proposed for improved target detection capabilities.
