Analysis of Forward-Looking Synthetic Aperture Radar Imaging Characteristics of Rotating Target


Article Preview

In this paper,it is established the geometric and radar echo model of the rotating target with the Forward-looking synthetic aperture radar firstly,then the Doppler frequency History Formula is Deduced and Pointed out that the Formula has a sinusoidal characteristics. It is simulated the imaging of the stationary target and the rotating target with different rotation speed, the imaging result can be expressed as the forms of curve and the curve circle nomadic type, when these features appear in the imaging results, it can initially determine that the rotating target is presence.
