Paper Abstract

The problem of estimating azimuth in rotating array radar with a beam, wide in the azimuth plane, is considered. Under such setup the echo signal usually has a very low signal to noise ratio, but the number of observations is large, because of long dwell times. The proposed solution is based on the maximum likelihood approach, but it employs simplifications which facilitate its implementation in real time systems. Results, obtained by offline postprocessing of data recorded in a real-world radar system, demonstrate that the proposed solution allows one to reach estimation accuracy comparable to that offered by a system employing a narrow beam.
