Abstract : Progress is summarized on the first year of a proposed three-year (funded in annual increments) effort concerned with research and development of Non-Cooperative Target Recognition concepts based on radar transient response properties of air, sea, and land targets. The design and construction of a state-of-the-art compact radar transient response measurement range for target models of 4 ft. or less maximum presented and interpreted. Development of target discrimination algorithms is summarized. Finally, proposed effort for the second year of the effort is presented. (Author)
