Data Cube Slicer

Slice data cube along specified dimensions

  • Library:
  • Phased Array System Toolbox / Space-Time Adaptive Processing

  • Data Cube Slicer block

Description

The Data Cube Slicer block slices a data cube through a specified plane. The input is a data cube of dimensions M-by-Q-by-N. The first dimension is range, or fast time. The second dimension is angle, or channels. The third dimension is Doppler, or slow time.

Ports

Input

expand all

Input data cube, specified as an M-by-Q-by-N complex-valued matrix.

Data Types: double
Complex Number Support: Yes

Slice-plane index, specified as a positive integer. This index selects which slice to use to create the two-dimensional output.

Data Types: double

Output

expand all

Collapsed data cube, returned as a complex-valued matrix.

  • If you set the Output Slice parameter to Angle-Doppler, the slice is the constant-range or fast-time plane. The output has dimensions Q-by-N.

  • If you set the Output Slice parameter to Range-Doppler, the slice is the constant-angle plane. The output has dimension M-by-N.

  • If you set the Output Slice parameter to Range-angle, the slice is the constant-Doppler plane. The output has dimension M-by-Q.

Data Types: double
Complex Number Support: Yes

Parameters
