DOA Estimation Based on the Multipath of the MIMO Radar Target


Article Preview

The DOA Estimation of the MIMO radar is widely used to determine the position of the objects. Having been considered the multipath communication environment, this paper estimates the DOA information of low elevation targets using beam space MUSIC algorithm based on the model of uniform linear array of MIMO radar. Simulations have shown that the algorithm is effective in the multipath spread environment, and the resolution of the DOA estimation of angular is about 0.5°
