We present a soliton resonance method for moving target detection which is based on the use of inhomogeneous Korteweg-de Vries equation. Zero initial and absorbing boundary conditions are used to obtain the solution of the equation. The solution will be soliton-like if its right part contains the information about the moving target. The induced soliton will grow in time and the soliton propagation will reflect the kinematic properties of the target. Such soliton-like solution is immune to

Both, general formalism and computer simulations justifying the soliton resonance method capabilities are presented. Simulations are performed for 1D and 2D target movement.
