—The Capon beamformer has better resolution and much better interference rejection capability than the standard (data-independent) beamformer, provided that the array steering vector corresponding to the signal of interest (SOI) is accurately known. However, whenever the knowledge of the SOI steering vector is imprecise (as is often the case in practice),(More)
We consider least squares (LS) approaches for locating a radiating source from range measurements (which we call R-LS) or from range-difference measurements (RD-LS) collected using an array of passive sensors. We also consider LS approaches based on squared range observations (SR-LS) and based on squared range-difference measurements (SRD-LS). Despite the(More)
Array processing is widely used in sensing applications for estimating the locations and waveforms of the sources in a given field. In the absence of a large number of snapshots, which is the case in numerous practical applications such as underwater array processing, it becomes challenging to estimate the source parameters accurately. This paper presents a(More)
A multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar system, unlike a standard phased-array radar, can choose freely the probing signals transmitted via its antennas to maximize the power around the locations of the targets of interest, or more generally to approximate a given transmit beampattern, and also to minimize the cross-correlation of the signals(More)
Through waveform diversity, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar can provide higher resolution, improved sensitivity, and increased parameter identifiability compared to more traditional phased-array radar schemes. Existing methods for target estimation, however, often fail to provide accurate MIMO angle-range-Doppler images when there are only a few(More)
The standard Capon beamformer (SCB) is known to have better resolution and much better interference rejection capability than the standard data-independent beamformer when the array steering vector is accurately known. However, the major problem of the SCB is that it lacks robustness in the presence of array steering vector errors. In this paper, we will(More)
We have provided a review of some recent results on the emerging technology of MIMO radar with colocated antennas. We have shown that the waveform diversity offered by such a MIMO radar system enables significant superiority over its phased-array counterpart, including much improved parameter identifiability, direct applicability of adaptive techniques for(More)
