A Novel Range Super-Resolution Algorithm for UAV Swarm Target Based on LFMCW Radar

We consider the problem of estimating range about unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) swarm target. The main challenges are small radar cross-section (RCS) and high target density. In this paper, for better accumulation, we focus the original beat signal by Focus-Before-Detect (FBD) and obtain the velocity. Based on the velocity, we form a compensation matrix to eliminate the range migration (RM). Then, a novel range super-resolution algorithm based on the gridless sparse method is implemented that improves the range resolution to a great extent. Experimental results based on simulated and real measured data are carried out to demonstrate the accuracy of the model and the effectiveness of the algorithm.
