Abstract
Abstract. This paper addresses the problem of detection, imaging and automatic target recognition of moving targets using synthetic aperture radar. The challenge in processing moving targets is addressed with special emphasis on the blind angle ambiguity and on the maximum unambiguous moving target velocity. It is shown that both ambiguities can be solved by including information about the antenna radiation pattern. This information is crucial to obtain focused images of moving targets in order to perform automatic target recognition. Some methodologies using artificial intelligence tools to perform automatic target recognition are presented.
