An improved method for deceptive jamming against synthetic aperture radar

  • Hem Dutt Joshi (a1), Ravneet Kaur (a1), Ashutosh Kumar Singh (a1) and Amit Mishra (a1)


Jamming of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) is more difficult than the conventional radars because of its high processing gain. The defocusing of fake or virtual scatterers is the main problem that any jamming technique needs to tackle. An algorithm based on fractional Fourier transform is proposed for the efficient jamming of SAR. The results show that the performance of proposed algorithm is better than conventional Range Doppler Algorithm.
