Paper Abstract

Cetin has applied non-quadratic optimization methods to produce feature enhanced high range resolution (HRR) radar profiles. This work concerned ground based targets and was carried out in the temporal domain. In this paper, we propose a wavelet-based-half-quadratic technique for ground-to-air target identification. The method is tested on simulated data generated by standard techniques. This analysis shows the ability of the proposed method to recover high-resolution features such as the locations and amplitudes of the dominant scatterers in the HRR profile. This suggests that the technique potentially may help improve the performance of HRR target recognition systems.
