Abstract

A new, versatile, UHF/L band, ultrawideband (UWB), vehicle-mounted radar system developed at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) has recently been exercised at an arid U.S. test site. The unique switching scheme implemented to record data from all receive channels is described, along with the current calibration procedure. Radar and global positioning system (GPS) data collected in both forwardand side-looking configurations are processed, and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images are formed. Results are presented for various target emplacement scenarios.
