    Instantaneous altitude estimation of maneuvering target in over-the-horizon radar exploiting multipath Doppler signatures

    Over-the-horizon radar systems are capable of localizing targets in range and azimuth but are unable to achieve reliable altitude estimation. Past work has shown that the time-varying Doppler signatures of mic...

    High-resolution DOA estimation with Meridian prior

    Based on the assumption that only a few point sources exist in the spatial spectrum, the direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation problem can be formulated as a problem of sparse representation of signal with res...

    Multiple target three-dimensional coordinate estimation for bistatic MIMO radar with uniform linear receive array

    A novel scheme to achieve three-dimensional (3D) target location in bistatic radar systems is evaluated. The proposed scheme develops the additional information of the bistatic radar, that is the transmit angl...

    Range ambiguity clutter suppression for bistatic STAP radar

    Bistatic pulse-Doppler airborne radar has desirable properties such as the low probability of detection by other radars relative to its monostatic counterpart. However, the clutter characteristics of bistatic ...

    Developments in target micro-Doppler signatures analysis: radar imaging, ultrasound and through-the-wall radar

    Target motions, other than the main bulk translation of the target, induce Doppler modulations around the main Doppler shift that form what is commonly called a target micro-Doppler signature. Radar micro-Dopp...
