Abstract : This paper gives an overview over the field of airborne MTIsystems (AMTI). For introduction, the problems of airborne MTI is pointed out. Well-known techniques such as conventional MTI and DPCA (displaced phase center antenna) are briefly described. Then the authors give a prospective view of future AMTI-techniques, including an overview of their own work on novel algorithms (TASTE = Techniques for Airborne Slow Target Extraction). Although airborne radar is particularly addressed in this paper, the results may, with some modifications, be applied to other moving sensor configurations, such as active sonar, spaceborne radar, and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). The paper is intended to be tutorial and gives an overview over the state of the art in AMTI techniques. Readers interested in more details are referred to the references given below.
