Principles of Space-time Adaptive Processing
Following the success of the author's first book on space-time adaptive processing (STAP), this is the first part of a new two volume set on STAP. This book presents a systematic introduction to airborne MTI (moving target indication) system design for use in the fields of earth observation, surveillance and reconnaissance, with particular regard to the suppression of clutter returns. Coverage includes signal processing, clutter models, array processing theory, adapted linear arrays, non-linear antenna configurations, circular arrays, space-frequency techniques, clutter suppression jamming conditions. Two STAP applications are discussed, SAR and ISAR, and shown to be based on the same mathematical background. Finally, new developments in the field and special aspects of airborne MTI radar make this book the definitive text on STAP.
