Abstract : Signal subspace processing issues associated with uncalibrated along-track SARs for Moving Target Detection (MTD) and motion estimation are examined. A non-overlapping block-based implementation of the signal subspace algorithm for MTD and ATR is developed. Overlapping block-based signal subspace processing to estimate target motion parameters is studied. Application of the signal subspace method in other electronic and camera-based imaging systems, for example, diagnostic medicine and video, are investigated. Calibrating wide-beamwidth monopulse SARs is studied. Numerical results are provided.
