A hot clutter mitigation algorithm based on Subbanding and Space Fast-time Adaptive Processing (Fast-time STAP) for Multi-channel Synthetic Aperture Radar (MSAR) is analyzed, and is compared with the method based on just fast-time STAP. Simulation results demonstrate that the method based on subbanding and fast-time STAP performs better than the method based on just fast-time STAP in hot clutter mitigation for MSAR.
