Space-time adaptive processing (STAP) is an exciting technology for advanced radar systems that allows for significant performance enhancements over conventional approaches. Based on a time-tested course taught in industry, government and academia, this second edition reviews basic STAP concepts and methods, placing emphasis on implementation in real-world systems. It addresses the needs of radar engineers who are seeking to apply effective STAP techniques to their systems, and serves as an excellent reference for non-radar specialists with an interest in the signal processing applications of STAP. Engineers find the analysis tools they need to assess the impact of STAP on a variety of important radar applications. A toolkit of STAP algorithms and implementation techniques allows practitioners the flexibility of adapting the best methods to their application. In addition, this second edition adds brand new coverage on “STAP on Transmit” and “Knowledge-Aided STAP (KA-STAP).
Annotation This is a systematic introduction to MTI (moving target indication) system design for use in the fields of earth observation, surveillance and reconnaisance, with particular regard to the suppression of clutter returns. Coverage includes signal processing, clutter models, array processinig theory, adapted linear arrays, non-linear antenna configurations, circular arrays, space-frequency techniques, and clutter suppression jamming conditions. This book is a follow up to the author's successful first book on STAP.
This text discusses various applications of space-time adaptive processing, including applications in OTH-radar, ground target tracking, STAP in real world clutter environments, jammer cancellation, superresolution, active sonar, seismics and communications. It is divided into two parts: the first dealing with the classical adaptive suppression of airborne and spacebased radar clutter, and the second comprising of miscellaneous applications in other fields such as communications, underwater sound and seismics.
In airborne surveillance radar applications, adaptive antennas provide for the detection of small targets in severe clutter environments. Adaptive antennas are currently being considered for the design of next generation surveillance platforms. The radar problem is two-dimensional with radar returns being a function of both angle and Doppler. Space-Time Adaptive Processing (STAP) is required for rejection of interferences in the space-time domains. To make STAP feasible for incorporation into future systems, low complexity algorithms are required. The space-time radar problem is well suited to the application of techniques that take advantage of the low-rank properties associated with the interference in such radars. The Eigencanceler is an interference cancellation method based on the spectral decomposition (eigenanalysis) of the space-time covariance matrix. The linear space spanned by the columns of the space-time covariance matrix is formed by the union of the algebraic spaces of the interference and the noise. The Eigencanceler's weight vector is designed to lie in the noise subspace and to provide a prescribed gain to the desired signal. Thus significant computational savings are realized since a Weiner filter requires a matrix inversion, while the eigencanceler is implemented by computing only a limited number of interference eigenvectors.
Walks the reader through adaptive approaches to radar signal processing by detailing the basic concepts of various techniques and then developing equations to analyze their performance. Finally, it presents curves that illustrate the attained performance.

Discover the technology for the next generation of radar systems Here is the first book that brings together the key concepts essential for the application of Knowledge Based Systems (KBS) to radar detection, tracking, classification, and scheduling. The book highlights the latest advances in both KBS and radar signal and data processing, presenting a range of perspectives and innovative results that have set the stage for the next generation of adaptive radar systems. The book begins with a chapter introducing the concept of Knowledge Based (KB) radar. The remaining nine chapters focus on current developments and recent applications of KB concepts to specific radar functions. Among the key topics explored are: Fundamentals of relevant KB techniques KB solutions as they apply to the general radar problem KBS applications for the constant false-alarm rate processor KB control for space-time adaptive processing KB techniques applied to existing radar systems Integrated end-to-end radar signals Data processing with overarching KB control All chapters are self-contained, enabling readers to focus on those topics of greatest interest. Each one begins with introductory remarks, moves on to detailed discussions and analysis, and ends with a list of references. Throughout the presentation, the authors offer examples of how KBS works and how it can dramatically improve radar performance and capability. Moreover, the authors forecast the impact of KB technology on future systems, including important civilian, military, and homeland defense applications.
