Estimation of Parameters of Target Using RADAR Data Sets
Radar (radio detection and ranging) has large number of application ranging from remote sensing to missile guidance, but it is widely employed to estimate the velocity and position of a moving or presence of stationary targets. Different types of radars which are used for this purpose are pulse Doppler radar, MTI (moving target indicator) radar with different types of configuration like monostatic or bistatic. This work primarily focuses on the velocity and position estimation of a moving target using different radar data sets. Initially, Doppler effect and time delay of the received signal for a simple monostatic radar configuration are examined. Then, the graphical user interface (GUI) is developed in MATLAB to model the ambiguity function in order to derive the target parameters from the received signal.
