Abstract : Collecting high resolution radar imagery of ground vehicles is of interest to many Army and DOD agencies. Systems used to acquire this data rely on high quality calibration data to produce meaningful radar images. A system to collect high resolution radar data has been built at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory. A method to quickly and accurately collect the calibration data needed by this system, an inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR), is presented in this report.
