The problem of estimating the parameters of a moving target in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar is considered and a new approach for estimating the moving target parameters by making use of the phase information associated with each transmit-receive path is introduced. It is required for this technique that different receive antennas have the same time reference, but no synchronization of initial phases of the receive antennas is needed and, therefore, the estimation process is… 
Location algorithms for moving target in non-coherent distributed multiple-input multiple-output radar systems
TLDR
Two new methods are proposed for estimating the location and speed of a moving target in the non-coherent multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar systems with widely separated antennas, in which the parameters used are the joint of bearing, elevation, frequency- of-arrival (FOA) and time-of-ar Arrival (TOA).
An Improved Algebraic Solution for Moving Target Localization in Noncoherent MIMO Radar Systems
TLDR
The method is based on the well-known two-stage weighted least squares method, but in contrast to the recently proposed Group-2SWLS, it requires only one reference transmitter (or receiver) without grouping and combining to obtain a closed-form solution which is less likely to be degraded by bias.
