A Coherent Integration Method for Moving Target Detection in a Parameter Jittering Radar System Based on Signum Coding
IEEE Signal Processing Letters
In this letter, we propose a novel long-time coherent integration detection method to detect an uncooperative moving target in a frequency and pulse repetition interval randomly jittering radar system based on signum coding (SC). In the proposed algorithm, an additional reference waveform is applied to eliminate the third-order harmonic influence induced by SC. Then, a generalized Keystone transform (GKT) is proposed to resolve the complex coupling among the range frequency, jittered carrier frequency, and nonuniformly sampled time. Simulation results are presented to validate the effectiveness and feasibility of the proposed method.
