Based on the Airborne SAR - ATI - GMTI System Research


Article Preview

The actual airborne dual-channel data is disposed to indicate the moving target by ATI. In order to solve the problems caused by the unideal movement in the flight and other engineering factors which influence the GMTI, the paper presents the method to compensate the interference phase base on calculate the phase centroid of every sub-image. Besides, this paper simplifies some data processing to realize the real-time GMTI and improves the efficiency. With this method, the actual SAR data is proceeded to get the targets position and movement parameter. Results prove the validity of the approach.
