Abstract
This document presents the result of a simulation-based study into the performance of all detection algorithms that have been implemented in the Surface Moving Target Indicator (SMTI) processor gmtipro2 so far. All of the implemented detection algorithms were successfully demonstrated on the actual Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data from RADARSAT-2 acquired in the Moving Object Detection Experiment (MODEX) mode, but ground truth was not always available and different MODEX settings could not be executed on the same real-world scenarios. Simulations provide a very controlled way of evaluating different algorithms and MODEX modes under simple, but well-defined, conditions.
