Robust group compressive sensing for DOA estimation with partially distorted observations

In this paper, we propose a robust direction-of-arrival (DOA) estimation algorithm based on group sparse reconstruction algorithm utilizing signals observed at multiple frequencies. The group sparse reconstruction scheme for DOA estimation is solved through the complex multitask Bayesian compressive sensing algorithm by exploiting the group sparse property of the received ...

Motion parameter estimation of multiple ground moving targets in multi-static passive radar systems

Multi-static passive radar (MPR) systems typically use narrowband signals and operate under weak signal conditions, making them difficult to reliably estimate motion parameters of ground moving targets. On the other hand, the availability of multiple spatially separated illuminators of opportunity provides a means to achieve multi-static diversity and overall signal enhancement. In ...

Low-complexity sparse reconstruction for high-resolution multi-static passive SAR imaging*

Bi-static passive synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems using ground broadcast and wireless network signals suffer from a low spatial resolution due to the narrow bandwidths and low carrier frequencies. By exploiting multiple distributed illuminators, multi-static passive radar has the possibility of producing high-resolution SAR images. In this paper, a two-stage image formation ...

Multiple-relay selection in amplify-and-forward cooperative wireless networks with multiple source nodes

In this article, we propose multiple-relay selection schemes for multiple source nodes in amplify-and-forward wireless relay networks based on the sum capacity maximization criterion. Both optimal and sub-optimal relay selection criteria are discussed, considering that sub-optimal approaches demonstrate advantages in reduced computational complexity. Using semi-definite programming ...

Instantaneous altitude estimation of maneuvering target in over-the-horizon radar exploiting multipath Doppler signatures

Over-the-horizon radar systems are capable of localizing targets in range and azimuth but are unable to achieve reliable altitude estimation. Past work has shown that the time-varying Doppler signatures of micro-multipath signals provide rich information for reliable estimation of altitude changes. In this paper, we develop a new technique for the estimation of instantaneous ...

Joint DOD/DOA estimation in MIMO radar exploiting time-frequency signal representations

In this article, we consider the joint estimation of direction-of-departure (DOD) and direction-of-arrival (DOA) information of maneuvering targets in a bistatic multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar system that exploits spatial time-frequency distribution (STFD). STFD has been found useful in solving various array processing problems, such as direction finding and blind ...
