The coherent processing interval in Over-The-Horizon Radar (OTHR) is usually set long to strengthen the weak signals, which increases the nonstationarity of the inference and make it more difficult to be restrained. In this paper, a piecewise beamforming method using multiple constraints to hold the coherence of the clutter is proposed. Comparing with the existing method with one constraint, this method can restrain the non-stationary inference and avoid the spreading of the clutter in more complicated situation. Simulation results illustrate the efficiency of the method.

When detecting low-attitude targets, the angular accuracy of the meter-wave radar will descend because of the multipath reflecting from ground. Since the multipath signal can be regarded as a multipath jamming coming from the mainlobe, we propose an angle measurement based on the mainlobe multipath jamming suppression. The weight of the new approach is obtained through certain constraints on the sum-difference beams, which can suppress the jamming and keep the curve of the monopulse ratio unchanged. Then form sum-difference beams and calculate the ratio of the monopulse ratio of the target. Finally, obtain the angle of the target through the determination of the smallest difference between the monopulse ratio of the target and the quiescent monopulse ratio. The method proposed in this paper can preserve good precision of the measurement angle. The result is verified by computer simulation © 2012 IEEE.

To remove the gain error caused by different waveforms and improve the performance of transmitting adaptive digital beamforming (TADBF), a reiterative matched filter (RMF) among different transmitted waveforms in Doppler domain is presented in this paper. Meanwhile, the drawback of RMF in time domain is analyzed. The simulation test shows that compared with the TADBF after matched filter (MF), the improvement of TADBF after RMF in Doppler domain on the quality of suppressing clutter is about 16dB. © 2012 IEEE.

To solve the problem of the descending of altitude measurement accuracy caused by the maneuvering target, an improving altitude estimation algorithm of Maneuvering Target Matched Field Processing (MTMFP) is proposed. The method forms the signal propagation model based on micro-multipath combined with the electronic density distribution of the ionosphere. A complex range-Doppler signal model with target maneuver parameters (i.e. target altitude varying rate, radial acceleration and turn, angular rate) is constructed then. Finally, the performance of the MTMFP algorithm is analyzed. Simulation results show that, the method could realize the altitude estimation of maneuvering target. The error of the altitude estimation is around 500m within 10 dwells data. © 2012 IEEE.

When detecting low-attitude targets, the angular accuracy of the meter-wave radar will descend because of the multipath reflecting from ground. Since multipath signals can be regarded as multipath jamming coming from the mainlobe, we propose an angle measurement based on the mainlobe multipath jamming suppression through differential constraints technique. The weight of the new approach is obtained through certain constraints on the sum-difference beams, which can suppress the jamming and keep the curve of the monopulse ratio unchanged simultaneously. Then form sum-difference beams and calculate the ratio of the monopulse ratio of the target. Finally, obtain the angle of the target through the determination of the smallest difference between the monopulse ratio of the target and the quiescent monopulse ratio. The method proposed in this paper can preserve good precision of the measurement angle. The result is verified by computer simulation. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

From the viewpoint of the mainlobe multipath jamming suppression, an angle measurement technique was proposed. The weight of the new approach was obtained through certain constraints on the sum-difference beams. Precisely, the gain of the adaptive sum weight in the direction of the target was constrained to be one, while the gain of this weight in the direction of the jamming was confined to be zero. In contrast, the gain of the adaptive difference weight in the direction of the target was constrained to be zero, while the gain of this weight in the direction of the jamming was confined to be one. At the same time, two symmetry points in the linear interval of the curve of the quiescent monopulse ratio were selected as constrained points to keep the curve of the monopulse ratio unchanged. Then sum-difference beams were formed and the ratio of the monopulse ratio of the target was calculated. Finally, the angle of the target was obtained through the determination of the smallest difference between the monopulse ratio of the target and the quiescent monopulse ratio. The method proposed in this paper can preserve good precision of the measurement angle. The result is verified by computer simulation.

With multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technique, skywave over-the-horizon radar (OTHR) is able to implement transmit adaptive digital beamforming (TADBF) to suppress multipath clutter or interference, which is a key technique in next generation OTHR. Time-staggered linear frequency modulated continuous wave and Doppler offset waveforms have been proposed in MIMO OTHR. However, both of the waveforms are constrained by Doppler ambiguity. To solve the problem, a slow time random phase-coded (STRPC) waveforms set fit for both maritime and aircraft surveillance in MIMO OTHR is proposed. And to detect weak targets submerged by cross- correlation peaks caused by strong clutters or large targets, a hierarchical waveform separation (HWS) is proposed. Simulation results are presented to verify the effectiveness of STRPC waveforms and HWS. © 2012 IEEE.
