Wideband Radar Echo Simulation of Midcourse Precesional Target with Non-Ideal Scattering Centers
Radar echo of ballistic midcourse target contains unique motion information of the target, which can provide important evidence for target recognition. A wideband radar echo simulation model for midcourse precesional target is developed, where the micro-motion model, electromagnetic scattering calculation and linear frequency modulated (LFM) radar signal model are integrated. Firstly, the position variation of each scattering center of the moving target is analyzed. Then, the high frequency method is used to judge the masking effect of scattering centers of the rotational symmetry target. Finally, the wideband radar echo is simulated, and the impacts of high speed translational motion, non-precession movement and non-idealization of the scattering centers on the echo are also analyzed.
