Abstract: This paper presents an application of the detection of moving target by focusing technique (DMTF) in civil traffic monitoring. With an assumption of known moving directions of vehicles, DMTF allows first detecting these vehicles, then estimating their speed and finally imaging the vehicles of interest. With DMTF, the civil traffic monitoring requires only a singlechannel airborne SAR system.
