Abstract:

Inspired by recent advances in compressive sensing (CS), we introduce CS to the radar sensor network (RSN) using pulse compression technique. Our idea is to employ a set of stepped-frequency (SF) waveforms as pulse compression codes for transmit sensors, and to use the same SF waveforms as the sparse matrix to compress the signal in the receiving sensor. We obtain that the signal samples along the time domain could be largely compressed so that they could be recovered by a small number of measurements. A diversity gain could also be obtained at the output of the matched filters. In addition, we also develop a maximum likelihood (ML) algorithm for radar cross section (RCS) parameter estimation and provide the Cramer-Rao lower bound (CRLB) to validate the theoretical result. Simulation results show that the signal could be perfectly reconstructed if the number of measurements is equal to or larger than the number of transmit sensors. Even if the signal could not be completely recovered, the probability of miss detection of target could be kept zero. It is also illustrated that the actual variance of the RCS parameter estimationb \theta satisfies the CRLB and our ML estimator is an accurate estimator on the target RCS parameter.
