In this paper, the angular-diversity radar recognition of ships is given by transformation based approaches with noise effects taken into consideration. The ships and sea roughness are considered by simplified models in the simulation. The goal is to identify the similarity between the unknown target ship and known ships. Initially, the angular-diversity radar cross sections (RCS) from a ship are collected to constitute RCS vectors (usually largedimensional). These RCS vectors are projected into the eigenspace (usually small-dimensional) and radar recognition is then performed on the eigenspace. Numerical examples show that high recognition rate can be obtained by the proposed schemes. The radar recognition of ships in this study is straightforward and efficient. Therefore, it can be applied to many other radar applications.
