TARGET IMAGING FROM MULTIPLE FREQUENCY RADAR DATA

A basic process for producing three-dimensional isometric images of a radar target from measured multiple frequency scattering data has been modified to image targets with more complex geometrical shape from non-mutually ortogonal look angle data. Other modifications include changes in the use of the physical optics approximation beyond the shadow boundary use of polarization diversity information, and estimates of the length to width ratio of the target are given and illustrated. Images produced using these modifications are presented. Recommendations for further research to provide a more versatile imaging procedure are made. The computer programs presently used in the imaging process are given in appendices of the final report. (Author)
