Current inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) testing techniques for large targets has a need for significantly big spaces. More specifically the testing is done in anechoic chambers. This necessitates a significant cost along with a sizeable testing environment. One way to overcome this issue is to scale everything proportionally. This entails scaling the size of the target at use down and using proportionally higher electromagnetic (Emag) frequencies, since Maxwell’s equations are invariant under dilation transformation. Proof of concept for a scaled down ISAR system has been recently achieved. This allows for an exploration in signal processing techniques which can yield enhanced cross-range resolution ISAR images.
