The purpose of this research is to increase the target recognition rate by means of neural networks and feature fusion. We analyze the performance of different recognition methods (Bayesian classifier, support vector machine (SVM), and neural networks) based on high-resolution range profile (HRRP). The result shows the superiority of neural networks to Bayesian classifier and SVM in classification. We apply multi-source feature fusion to target recognition based on neural networks. The results show that, in certain cases, the target recognition ratio using fusion feature is higher than that of HRRP only.
