Multistatic Pulse-Wave Angle-of-Arrival-Assisted Relative Interferometric RADAR [Conference Paper]

NESL Technical Report #: 2009-2-2


Abstract: In this work we propose a Pulse-Wave (PW) extension to the Angle-of-arrival-assisted Radio Interferometry (ARI) technique to dramatically reduce the scan-time and the number of vantage points necessary to obtain high-fidelity target position estimation. Accordingly, we call this enhanced process PW-ARI. PW-ARI is the fusion of data from three domains: time (time-of-flight), phase (relative phase-of-arrival), and angle (direction-of-arrival). It has a number of desirable attributes. Foremost among these are its ability to rapidly image extremely large volumes with high accuracy and dense target clusters, support an infinite number of friendly aircraft while providing stealth operational support, and present a spectrally small footprint to both hostile (evade detection and counter-measures) and friendly (maximize electromagnetic compatibility) systems.
