Abstract: The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) has designed, developed, and constructed an ultra-wideband synthetic aperture (UWB SAR) imaging radar to detect obscured targets, such as vehicles concealed by foliage and objects buried underground. As part of this effort, ARL has developed the software called UWBView to support the study of this imaging radar. The software can be employed in both field test and laboratory situations. In a field test, it provides a tool to perform certain signal processing tasks and to quickly assess radar data quality. In the research environment, it provides analysts with data visualization and analysis capabilities to support the phenomenological studies of targets and clutter. In a data processing environment, the software performs data and signal processing tasks. This report discusses the current software features and sample studies of UWB radar data using the software.
