Paper Abstract

Due to its capability of capturing the kinematic properties of a target object, radar micro-Doppler signatures (m-DS) play an important role in radar target classification. This is particularly evident from the remarkable number of research papers published every year on m-DS for various applications. However, most of these works rely on the support vector machine (SVM) for target classification. It is well known that training an SVM is computationally expensive due to its nature of search to locate the supporting vectors. In this paper, the classifier learning problem is addressed by a total error rate (TER) minimization where an analytic solution is available. This largely reduces the search time in the learning phase. The analytically obtained TER solution is globally optimal with respect to the classification total error count rate. Moreover, our empirical results show that TER outperforms SVM in terms of classification accuracy and computational efficiency on a five-category radar classification problem.
