A Novel Stealthy Target Detection Based on Stratospheric Balloon-borne Positional Instability due to Random Wind
MetadataShow full item record
A novel detection for stealthy target model F-117A with a higher aspect vision is introduced by using Stratospheric Balloon-borne Bistatic system. The potential problem of proposed scheme is platform instability impacted on the balloon by external wind force. The flight control system is studied in detail under typical random process, which is defined by Dryden turbulence spectrum. To accurately detect the stealthy target model, a real Radar Cross Section (RCS) based on physical optics (PO) formulation is applied. The sensitivity of the proposed scheme has been improved due to increasing PO – scattering field of stealthy model with higher aspect angle comparing to the conventional ground -based system. Simulations demonstrate that the proposed scheme gives much higher location accuracy and reduces location errors.
