Optimum Signal Shaping for MIMO Radar System

  •  Jamal S. Rahhal    


signal and hence, spatial diversity gain is obtained. A MIMO radar system, transmit via its diverse antennas multiple probing signals that is used to detect targets. The receiving antennas combined together form independent units. Their signals can be processed to make use from the diversity gain and better identifies the targets. In this paper, optimal probing signals are derived and its performance is simulated. MIMO radar can transmit different orthogonal signals that lead to signal diversity. Results showed good utilization of spatial diversity and better timing detection when using the optimal signals over the conventional phased array radar.
