In this paper, a heuristic detector is proposed to detect range-spread targets in white Gaussian noise using multiple consecutive high- resolution range profiles (HRRPs) received from a high-resolution radar (HRR). The detector consists of refiners of HRRPs and a cross-correlation integrator of refined HRRPs. Based on the fact that strong scattering cells are sparse in target HRRPs, nonlinear shrinkage maps are designed to refine received HRRPs before integration, by which most of the noise… CONTINUE READING
