An effective method, extending Prony algorithm based on Self-organizing feature map neural network, is introduced for radar target feature extraction. The method is a modified classical Prony method based on singular value decomposition and excellent classified capability of Self-organizing feature map neural network which can improved robust for spectrum estimation. Simulation results show that poles and residues of target echo can be extracted effectively using this method, at the same time, random noises are restrained in some degree. It is applicable to target feature extraction such as UWB radar or the other high resolution range radar.
