Paper Abstract

A radar target recognition system based on genetic minimization algorithms is proposed in this study. A pool of known binary encoded target responses is bred such that its fitness with the signatures of an unknown target with unknown azimuth position is maximized. Once the pool is stabilized, the identity of the unknown target is determined as the most dominant bit string in the pool. The performance of the proposed target recognition system measured in error rate versus signal to noise ratio is discussed.
