Cramer-Rao Bound for Parameter Estimation in Bistatic MIMO Radar


Article Preview

The problem of Cramér-Rao bound for parameter estimation in wideband bistatic Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) radar system is considered. In many applications, it is not appropriate to approximate the wideband signal by the narrowband model. In this paper, we propose a new wideband signal model to accurately estimate parameter for wideband signals from a moving target. The Cramér-Rao bound for target parameter estimation is derived and computed in closed form which shows that the optimal performance is achieved. Target location and parameter estimation performances are evaluated and studied theoretically and via simulations.
