Solar radar would utilize direct radar reflection from the solar plasma along with radar scatter from plasma waves in coronal arcs and CMEs.
The AI will be trained through machine learning on images where changes in radar reflection are displayed as waveforms, and will then determine whether they are cavities or sewer pipes.
Both systems are reportedly designed to minimize their radar cross-section via low-observable features such as stealth coatings that absorb the radio waves of adversary radar and shaping measures that minimize radar reflection," the report said.
Even that ALOS acquisitions have relatively high resolution, the phase values will be influenced by radar reflection from all scatterers within 10x10 m resolution cell while positions of the levelling points are clearly known.
For example, with tests of the sea-based Aegis system, much larger targets than would be expected in real attacks have been used, with the mock warhead remaining attached to the body of the missile much longer than would be expected, creating a larger radar reflection that is easier for the system to track, Wright said.
Data analysis of the "amateur" version of the meteor radar--the passive forward-scatter technique--is even more challenging, as the strength of the radar reflection is not correlated with the brightness of the corresponding meteor.
We excluded the Doppler function and included the algorithm which estimates visibility from radar reflection factor.
The "Stealth technology" uses curved or angular surfaces to reduce radar reflection - known as a cross section.

With this new capability, users can model structural materials specially designed for reduced radar reflection such as those for aircraft and missiles.
Coded pulse modulation technique that employs a newly designed code sequence for pulse radar method to improve sensitivity characteristics, thereby achieving extension of the detection range and finding out small objects that have weak radar reflection.
Compared with lunar soil, which absorbs radar signals, ice would produce a strong radar reflection.
