Abstract:
It is potentially useful to perform target identification using micro-Doppler features because they contain information on the geometrical structure of the target. In this paper, the m-D effect of the rotationally symmetric ballistic target (BT) is analyzed which reveals that the m-D is not a form of sinusoidal modulation due to the sliding-type scattering. Inspired by the extended Hough transform (EHT), a method to extract all the six parameters of the BT is proposed. The m-D effect and the performance of feature extraction algorithm are demonstrated by the measured data in a microwave anechoic chamber.
