Foliage Penetration Radar: Detection and characterisation of objects under trees — Recommend this title to your library

Thank you

Your recommendation has been sent to your librarian.

This chapter will present the major system design of a tactical foliage penetration (FOPEN) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) that could be built with emerging technology. It will go through the steps of the concept of operations (CONOPS) of FOPEN SAR with high area coverage rates (ACRs) and with focused attention for more accurate target detection and characterization. The radar power-aperture product can be chosen, given a standoff range and characteristics of the foliage and targets, to meet the requisite resolution and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) requirements. Next, guidelines will be summarized for the subsystem specifications, the grazing angle and receiver dynamic range for minimizing the foliage loss and RFI effects, and several modes to meet the CONOPs requirements.
