Abstract
This paper presents an application of the moving target detection by focusing technique (MTDF) in civil traffic monitoring. The experimental results based on simulations show that the basic civil traffic monitoring can be solved using MTDF using a single-channel airborne SAR system. With an assumption of known moving directions of vehicles, MTDF allows detecting, estimation of speed, and finally reconstructing a SAR image of the vehicles of interest. In this study, the focusing approach of MTDF is based on ultrawideband chirp scaling (UCS) algorithm.
