Detection of MIMO Radar with Space-Time Coding in Compound Gaussian Environment
This paper mainly deals with the target detecting problem of MIMO radar with space time coding (STC) in compound Gaussian environment, which include the correlated Gaussian clutter and uncorrelated Gaussian scattering. The detector based on generalized likelihood ratio test (GLRT) criterion is studied, and two-step design procedure is adopted when the covariance of clutter is unknown. Specifically, a suitable GLRT estimate based on referenced data is inserted into the detector to make fully adaptive. Some numerical results are given, showing that the derived 2s-GLRT of STC MIMO radar can provide a good performance in spikier clutter and the adaptive loss is acceptable.
