Blind Source Separation for Extraction of Target Scattering Centers
This chapter focuses on using blind source separation of complex signals to extract scattering centers of radar targets that can then be used for target identification. The concept introduced in this paper assumes that the signal returned (or scattered) from a target is linear or convolutive mixture of several scattering centers along the body of an unknown aircraft. This information can then be used in a pattern recognition scheme for the purpose of identifying the non-cooperative unknown target. The results presented prove the concept using synthetic radar data. Work is ongoing to apply this concept to real radar data as received through an array of sensors (antennas).
