Target Localization for Distributed Multiple-Input Multiple-Output Radar Using Capon Algorithm with Diagonal Loading

Abstract:

Article Preview

The distributed multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar can achieve the high- resolution capabilities of target localization by coherent processing, far exceeding the bandwidth-dependent resolution of traditional radar. The conventional beam former synchronizing the phase across the widely separated transmitting and receiving antennas creates high level sidelobes that causes ambiguity in target localization. The Capon beam former with lower level sidelobes for target localization suffers from the irreversible of the covariance matrix when the numbers of transmitting and receiving antennas increase. Thus, the Capon algorithm with diagonal loading is applied to distributed MIMO radar for target localization with lower level sidelobes. Simulation results are presented to verify the effectiveness of the proposed method.
