Short summary
Synthetic Aperture Radar is an efficient solution for traffic monitoring due to its high spatial resolution and independence from daylight and weather conditions. This paper presents a fast processor based on the powerful post-Doppler space-time adaptive processing technique. The algorithm has great potential for real-time processing, decreased hardware complexity and low costs compared to state-of-the-art systems. It is tested using real 4-channel data acquired with the DLR’s airborne F-SAR.
