We simulate the performance of existing and planned tactical GMTI (ground moving target indicator) systems using data cubes derived from high-fidelity interferometric SAR measurements, to assess the utility of these GMTI systems for an auxiliary terrain height estimation function. The two systems are current and next generation GMTI radars with linear and planar arrays, respectively, that could be mounted on a manned aircraft or a large UAV. In order to achieve the vertical element separation… CONTINUE READING
