The calibration algorithm for circular array in the presence of amplitude and phase error is researched deep exploiting the assistant sensors. In order to calibrate the amplitude and phase error for the circular array, in this paper, two setting methods of assitant elements are presented, i.e., assitant elements are setted on the coordinate axis and on circle. Simulation experiments results show that the two proposed setting methods are effective in the presence of amplitude and phase error for circular array, and has low computational burden and high estimation precision of angle and amplitude and phase error. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

Direct data domain (DDD) space-time adaptive processing methods avoid nonhomogenerous training samples and can effectively suppress the clutter within the test range cell. However, it suffers inevitable performance loss due to the spatial and temporal smoothing process. Furthermore, the clutter suppression ability of these methods sharply degrades when applied to non-uniform and non-linear array for airborne radar. In this paper, a novel clutter suppression approach in the direct data domain is proposed, which describes clutter characteristic of the test range cell with AR model. For convenience, the novel method is referred to as (Formula Presented.). It utilizes the most system DOF. Hence, it suffers less aperture loss, compared to conventional DDD methods, e.g., the direct data domain least squares (Formula Presented.). More importantly, (Formula Presented.) can achieve much better clutter suupression prformance than (Formula Presented.) when applied to conformal array airborne radar because it does not need the spatial smoothing. The effectiveness of the (Formula Presented.) is verified by numerical examples for the case of a circular array. © 2014, Springer Science+Business Media New York. Source

A novel space-time adaptive processing (STAP) method for nonstationary clutter suppression is proposed. The developed method forms a multibeam along the cross line to participate in adaptive processing, which sufficiently utilizes the spatial information both in azimuth and elevation and guarantees the least system degrees of freedom (DOFs). The characteristics of this structure help to suppress the short-range clutter which is the primary component of nonstationary clutter. Therefore, this method provides favorable clutter suppression performance when clutter range dependence exists. Approach analysis and simulation results are given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the method. © 2013 Yongliang Wang et al. Source

To get narrow beam width and estimate coherent sources, a novel nonuniform array structure is proposed in this article. Using the whole sensors, the narrow beam can be obtained and the close signals can be separated. In the meantime, coherent signals can be estimated using part sensors. The presented nonuniform array increases the coefficient of utilization of sensors, i.e., less sensors is required. Theoretical results show that the designed novel array has no ambiguity. Two arrays are designed using this idea. Simulation experiment results demonstrate that the estimation performance of the designed array is superior to that of the uniform linear array. © 2015 Taylor & Francis Group, London. Source

For star images obtained by star sensors, how to precisely and quickly estimate the measurement accuracy of angular distance between different magnitude stars still remains a challenge problem. In this paper, on the basis of analyzing the standard deviation of star centroid position bias, a theoretical measurement accuracy determination model of inter-star angles is proposed. However, this method has its limitation and can only be used to help design low-cost star trackers which commonly have small field-of-view (FOV) (no larger than 4° × 4°) Experiments on the simulated star maps show the effectiveness of proposed model. © 2015 IEEE.
