In this paper, we study the problem of code design to improve the detection performance of multi-static radar in the presence of clutter (i.e., a signal-dependent interference). To this end, we briefly present a discrete-time formulation of the problem as well as the optimal detector in the presence of Gaussian clutter. Due to the lack of analytical(More)
In this paper, we study the joint design of Doppler robust transmit sequence and receive filter to improve the performance of an active sensing system dealing with signal-dependent interference. The signal-to-noise-plus-interference (SINR) of the filter output is considered as the performance measure of the system. The design problem is cast as a max-min(More)
In this paper, we introduce a fast computational frequency-domain approach for designing complementary sets of sequences. Following the basic idea of CAN-based algorithms, we propose an extension of the CAN algorithm to complementary sets of sequences (which we call CANARY). Moreover, modified versions of the proposed algorithm are derived to tackle the(More)
Assuming unknown target Doppler shift, we focus on robust joint design of the transmit radar waveform and receive Doppler filter bank in the presence of signal-dependent interference. We consider the worst case signal-to-interference-plus-noise-ratio (SINR) at the output of the filter bank as the figure of merit to optimize under both a similarity and an(More)
Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is a mature and one of the most popular multicarrier modulation (MCM) techniques. Also, it is the main candidate for physical layer of cognitive radio (CR) networks. CR is a new method to satisfy ubiquitous demand for wireless services while there is no enough unlicensed spectrum. However, the most important(More)
In this paper, we deal with cognitive design of the transmit signal and receive filter optimizing the radar detection performance without affecting spectral compatibility with some licensed overlaid electromagnetic radiators. We assume that the radar is embedded in a highly reverberating environment and exploit cognition provided by Radio Environmental Map(More)
In this paper, we study the problem of optimal pulsed-radar transmit code design for detection of moving targets in the presence of clutter. To this end, a new data modeling is introduced and optimal detectors for known and unknown target Doppler shift are presented. In the case of unknown Doppler shift, the expressions of the optimal detector and its(More)
This paper considers the waveform design problem for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radars in order to improve the detection performance of the systems. We assume that target echoes are embedded in (signal-dependent) clutter as well as (colored) interference. Considering the optimal (Neyman-Pearson) detector, obtaining waveforms which maximize the(More)
In this paper, we study the problem of pulsed-radar transmit code design for detection of moving targets in the presence of signal-dependent clutter. For unknown target Doppler shift, the optimal detector does not lead to a closed-form expression. Therefore, we resort to average and worst-case performance metrics of the optimal detector for code design. We(More)
In this paper, we study the problem of unimodular code design to improve the detection performance of statistical multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar systems. To this end, we consider a system transmitting arbitrary unimodular signals and a discrete-time formulation of the problem. Due to the complicated form of the performance metric of the optimal(More)
