Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 48, 195-203, 2016
Abstract
This study focuses on the length estimation of ballistic targets based on the full-polarization range profiles measured by the wideband full-polarization radar system. Firstly, the mathematical model of full-polarization range profiles is introduced, and the full-polarization range profiles characteristics of typical ballistic targets are analyzed by using the microwave anechoic chamber measurement data. Secondly, three methods are proposed for target length estimation based on single-channel detection synthesis, SPAN power synthesis and target characteristic polarization, respectively. Then, comparison experiments among the proposed methods and the method based on single-polarization range profile are carried out. The results demonstrate that the extraction accuracy and the anti-noise performance of the method based on target characteristic polarization are better than the others. Furthermore, the influence of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) on the length estimation is also discussed.
