Scattering center extraction for radar targets is strongly related to high-resolution parameter estimation. In this paper, we propose the use of a decimative spectrum estimation method (DESED) for the estimation of the parameters of a synthetic radar signal. DESED is compared to two variants of the widely applied root-MUSIC algorithm, in terms of range and amplitude estimation errors. The proposed method outperforms root-MUSIC with modified spatial smoothing pre-processing, for both… CONTINUE READING
