Workshop 2.3
Time-Frequency Analysis For Radar Imaging, Target Detection and Feature Extraction

Dr. Victor C. Chen - Naval Research Laboratory

Thu, 29 April 2004, 1:30 PM - 5:30 PM


Time-frequency analysis has been an area of productive research. During the past decade, it has been used for radar imaging, target detection and feature extraction. By revealing time-varying frequency information embedded in radar signals, it has been successfully applied to radar image formation, back-scattering features, and micro-Doppler signatures. It has also been applied to improving radar performance for moving target detection, weak signal extraction, land mine detection in ground penetration radar, and maneuvering target detection in over-the-horizon radar. In the workshop, the author will introduce time-frequency analysis and review recent developments of time-frequency applications to radar imaging, target detection, and feature extraction, including time-frequency based image formation method, time-frequency analysis of EM back-scattering, and micro-Doppler signature analysis.

This Tutorial has a recommended book:

?Time-Frequency Transforms for Radar Imaging and Signal Analysis?, Victor C. Chen & H. Ling, Artech House, 2002.
