—The existing linear-frequency-modulated (or step frequency) and random noise synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems may correspond to the frequency-hopping and direct-sequence spread spectrum systems in the past second-and third-generation wireless communications. Similar to the current and future wireless communications generations, in this paper, we(More)
Our previously proposed OFDM with sufficient cyclic prefix (CP) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging algorithm is inter-range-cell interference (IRCI) free and achieves ideally zero range sidelobes for range reconstruction. In this OFDM SAR imaging algorithm, the minimum required CP length is almost equal to the number of range cells in a swath, while the(More)
In this paper, we propose MIMO OFDM radar with sufficient cyclic prefix (CP), where all OFDM pulses transmitted from different transmitters share the same frequency band and are orthogonal to each other for every subcarrier in the discrete frequency domain. The orthogonality is not affected by time delays from transmitters. Thus, our proposed MIMO OFDM(More)
In this letter, we demonstrate an optimization problem of antenna placement of distributed multi-input multi- output (MIMO) radar. To evaluate the surveillance performance of the radar system, a coverage ratio is proposed as a criterion. Since the problem is of extremely huge computational complexity due to its complicated objective function and high(More)
This letter considers adaptive target detection problem using multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar in the presence of spatially heterogeneous clutter. The covariances of the primary data and secondary data for the same and different transmit-receive pairs are modeled as different random matrices with partial priori knowledge of the environment.(More)
This correspondence introduces a waveform evaluation and selection strategy (ESS) for application of optimized phase-modulated (PM) waveforms to mitigate compound-Gaussian clutter in radar. This strategy addresses the trade-off between potential improvement in detection performance from adaptive design of PM waveforms and the cost this entails in terms of(More)
We consider an optimization problem of antenna placement of multistatic radar system (MSRS). The goal is to improve the system performance in terms of both detection capability and localization accuracy by optimally placing the antennas of MSRS. To this end, a coverage ratio and an average geometric dilution of precision (GDOP) of surveillance region are(More)
In this paper, we propose a range reconstruction method for a frequency-band shared multipleinput multiple-output (MIMO) orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) radar with sufficient cyclic prefix (CP) by using real orthogonal designs. Compared with the application of complex orthogonal designs in our previous work, the application of real(More)
