This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' A two stage hybrid space-time adaptive processing algorithm ' This research presents two new space-time adaptive processing (STAP) algorithms; a two-dimensional non-statistical method and a hybridisation of this approach with statistically based methods. The non-statistical algorithm developed here allows filtering of uncorrelated interference, such as discrete interferers, within the range cell of interest. However, the performance of these algorithms in homogeneous correlated interference scenarios is inherently inferior to traditional statistical STAP algorithms. The proposed hybrid algorithm alleviates this drawback by implementing a second stage of statistical adaptive processing. This paper illustrates the advantages of using a two stage adaptive process to combine the direct data domain and statistical algorithms. The work presented in this paper brings together two different aspects of STAP research: statistical and direct data domain processing. In doing so, this research fulfils an important need in the context of practical STAP processing.
