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)
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)
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)
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)
Retention of foreign bodies in maxillofacial region following trauma are not uncommon. Various retained foreign bodies reported; are tooth fragments, root canal filling material, burs, sewing needles, broken tips of probes and elevators, wooden tooth picks, piece of glass, blades of grass, a tooth brush bristle, fish bone, hair, piece of straw or grass,(More)
In this paper, we investigate two reduced-complexity iterative soft interference cancellation minimum mean square error (SIC-MMSE) receivers for frequency-selective multiple-input–multiple-output (MIMO) channels. In the first receiver, the extrinsic information is exchanged between the SIC-MMSE equalizer and the channel decoding stages at each iteration. In(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)
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)
