The aim of this paper is to present a new approach to process spatial and temporal data acquired by radar sensors in Space Time Adaptive Processing (STAP) context. This method consists of an original implementation of a High-Resolution method called Global Matched Filter (GMF) to the STAP data. Indeed the GMF models and identifies both clutter and target(s) from the data and it has the advantage of being able to do so using a single snapshot.
