Air-to-sea surveillance and tracking systems that provide rapid and positive identification of Non-Cooperative and Stealthy Targets (NCSTs) are connected with Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR) concepts and techniques. ISAR has several shortcomings that could be dealt with the contribution of a Phase Comparison Monopulse system. This paper presents the possible output for the height dimension of a ship target coming from a hybrid InISAR (Radio Frequency Interferometer- ISAR) system.
