A new data extrapolation technique which utilizes pole extraction based GPOF method is proposed to tit the scattering characteristics of an object. The proposed data extrapolation method is very efficient for data extrapolation when applied to the ISAR data. Modeling the data as the superposition of complex exponential signals, GPOF and Prony methods do not guarantee a stable prediction filter like the MCM method, while Burg ensures. Meanwhile the performance of GPOF decreases with the increasing number of scattering centers but the radar images obtained using this extrapolated data is still more accurate than those obtained using the extrapolated data generated by other methods.
