In "Cerutti-Maori, Sikaneta, Optimum GMTI Processing for Space-based SAR/GMTI Systems - Theoretical Derivation", the processing methods, EDPCA (Extended Displaced Phase Center Antenna) and ISTAP (Imaging Space Time Adaptive Processing), were proposed for optimum GMTI (Ground Moving Target Indication). This paper tests these methods using simulated data and contrasts the properties of each method. This paper also comments on the GMTI performance of current generation satellites because the simulated data are based upon proposed RADARSAT-2 modes.
