Abstract

Waveform-agile design approaches for target tracking involve the adaptive configuration of the next transmit waveform by optimizing some cost function such as the predicted mean-squared tracking estimation error. These approaches are shown to be advantageous for complex radar tracking, such as when the received waveforms have originated from multipath returns or the targets are embedded in dense clutter or are under obscuration. As a result, this chapter addresses waveform-agile sensing methodologies for new challenging tracking applications, including multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar, urban terrain multipath exploitation radar in high clutter and integrated urban terrain MIMO radar.
