Microwave-induced thermoacoustic tomography (MITAT) is a hybrid method which constructs images with ultrasound spatial resolution while exploiting dielectric contrast at microwave frequency. It has great potential in biomedical imaging especially in early breast cancer detection. The detection of early stage breast tumor in MITAT is challenged by the(More)
A flexible approach based on a hybrid differential evolution strategy (HDES) is developed for adaptive pattern nulling with time modulated linear antenna arrays. The HDES adjusts the least significant bits of the digital phase shifters and the on-off time sequence to minimize the total output power, deep nulls can then be placed in the direction of the(More)
In this paper, the problem of enhancing the detection performance of detector for target in partially homogeneous background is addressed. Based on a general measurement model, a new constant false alarm rate (CFAR) adaptive matched detector (AMD) is proposed through a two-step design procedure. The detection performance of the AMD is theoretically(More)
In this paper, the problem of detecting target in system-dependent clutter (SDC) background with a single observation from the test cell is researched. Classical detectors, such as the generalized likelihood ratio detectors (GLRDs) and the adaptive matched filters (AMFs), etc., usually deal with the clutter and the noise as a whole. The low rank detectors(More)
