Abstract : The purpose of the study is to determine those characteristics of a radar target which are most useful for identification purposes and combine them into a single comprehensive target model. A two-step identification procedure is developed. First, the cross section scattering matrix model is used to determine the orientation angle, and to eliminate the target-aspect angle combinations which are most unlikely. Then, the information contained in the short pulse response and dynamic response is used to arrive at a final decision based on maximum probability. A flow chart shows how the identification technique can be programmed on a digital computer. (Author)
