Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radars have many advantages over their phased-array counterparts: improved spatial resolution; better parametric identifiably and greater flexibility to design the transmit beampattern. The design of the transmit beampatterns generally requires the waveforms to have arbitrary auto- and cross-correlation properties. The(More)
Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar has better parametric identifiability but compared to phased-array radar, it shows loss in signal-to-noise ratio due to noncoherent processing. To exploit the benefits of both MIMO radar and phased array, a waveform covariance matrix is proposed. To generate the proposed covariance matrix, the values of the cosine(More)
The design of waveforms with specified auto- and cross-correlation properties has a number of applications in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar beampattern design. In this work, two algorithms are proposed to generate finite alphabet constant-envelope (CE) waveforms with required cross-correlation properties. The first-algorithm proposes a(More)
Compared to phased-array, multiple-input multiple- output (MIMO) radars provide more degrees-of-freedom (DOF) that can be exploited for improved spatial resolution, better parametric identifiability, lower sidelobe levels at the transmitter/receiver, and design variety of transmit beampatterns. The design of the transmit beampattern generally requires the(More)
A method for generating constant envelope (CE) waveforms to realise a given covariance matrix for a closely spaced MIMO radar system is proposed. In contrast to available algorithms, the technique provides closed form solutions for finding the required waveforms and suggests that waveforms can be chosen from finite alphabets such as binary-phase shift(More)
Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) requires an expensive linear amplifier at the transmitter due to its high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR). Single carrier with cyclic prefix (SC-CP) is a closely related transmission scheme that possesses most of the benefits of OFDM but does not have the PAPR problem. Although in a multipath environment,(More)
In multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar settings, it is often desirable to transmit power only to a given location or set of locations defined by a beampattern. Transmit waveform design is a topic that has received much attention recently, involving synthesis of both the signal covariance matrix, R, as well as the actual waveforms. Current methods(More)
