Abstract: When multiple radar targets are close to each other, the returned signals from these targets are overlapped in time. Therefore by applying conventional motion compensation algorithms designed for single target, the multiple targets cannot be resolved, and individual one cannot be clearly imaged. The authors conclude that whether the radar transmits linear frequency modulated (LFM) or stepped-frequency waveform, the chirp rate in the Doppler frequency shift induced by the translation motion is only concerned with the acceleration of the target. For different targets, the chirp rates are different from each other. Based on the different chirp rates, the signals from each target can be separated. Then a new algorithm based on the adaptive joint time frequency (AJTF) technique is proposed to separate the signals from different target in each cross-range cell. The use of the particle swarm optimisation (PSO) for multiple targets separation is a unique application of this evolutionary search. By the CLEAN technique, the number of targets need not be appointed. The simulation results confirm the efficiency of the proposed algorithm for multiple moving targets imaging. 2010 © The Institution of Engineering and Technology.
