A Novel Phase Distortion Correction Method Based on Temporal Correlation Matrix
Since the existence of the ionosphere contamination, results of high-frequency radar has been greatly affected. This paper addresses a new method based on temporal correlation matrix to correct phase distortion for HF sky-wave radars. Strong point echoes, such as target, clutter, transponder and so on, which are highly temporal correlated, can be used to structure temporal correlation matrix. And the matrix contains angles of echoes and phase distortions information. In this paper, we use two-dimension FFT to estimate angle of strong point echo, and then obtain the corrections. Computer simulations are conducted to show the validity of the new method, and some of performances of PGA were compared.
