We investigate the problem of a monostatic radar transceiver trying to detect a sparse target scene. Several past works employ compressed sensing (CS) algorithms to this type of problem, but either do not address sample rate reduction, impose constraints on the radar transmitter, or propose CS recovery methods with prohibitive dictionary size. Here, using the Xampling framework, we describe a sub-Nyquist sampling approach which overcomes the shortcomings of previous methods. Xampling allows… CONTINUE READING
