Adaptive Waveform Design of Polarimetric Radar for Extended Targets in Signal-Dependent Clutter
We focus on the joint design of the transmit waveform and receive filtering structure for polarimetric radar, with considering the output Signal to Interference plus Noise Ratio (SINR) as the figure of merit, under both a similarity and an energy constraint on the transmit signal. We develop an iterative optimization procedure that monotonically improves the SINR and converges to a stationary point. Each iteration of the algorithm requires the solution of both a convex and a hidden convex optimization problem. The resulting computational complexity is linear with the number of iterations and polynomial with the receive filter length. Experimental results show the effectiveness of the proposed technique.
