Tracking Unknown Number of Stealth Targets in a Multi-Static Radar with Unknown Receiver Detection Profile Using RCS Model
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 70, 145-155, 2018
Abstract
The reliable detection of geometrically-based stealth targets using a conventional single sensor radar system may be extremely difficult. This is because low Radar Cross Section (RCS) from certain angles results in a low Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR). In the present work, multi-target tracking of stealth targets is investigated in a multi-static radar with passive receivers. The Directions of Arrival (DOA) of targets are estimated by the receivers without knowing the number of targets, and their positions are obtained based on the transmitter beam direction. The B2 bomber aircraft model has been used as a stealth target. The RCS of the model has been simulated for all collection of incident and reflected angles from an oblique impinging plane wave. Probability of Detection (Pd) is modeled using a Toeplitz-based method for different SNRs due to different RCS patterns and is fed to an Iterated Corrected Probability Hypothesis Density (IC-PHD) filter. In spite of considering the transmitter and receivers resolution in our input data generation, the proposed algorithm is able to track the targets individually when they are much close to or even cross each other. Simulation results show the improved performance of the proposed method compared to other existing approaches.
