Abstract
This paper proposes a new method to separate inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) images using the range-Doppler algorithm when multiple targets fly closely spaced in a formation. This method is composed of three steps. The first step is an initial range-Doppler imaging of the whole set of targets to obtain a "bulk" image. In this step, range profiles are aligned using a new cost function, which is the sum of the amplitudes of the pixels lying along a polynomial that models the trajectory of the bulk image. To reduce the probability of incorrectly aligning high-amplitude pixels from different targets, pixel amplitudes are converted to binary form: A number. of pixels with the greatest amplitudes are identified in the bulk range profile, and their amplitudes are converted to one; the amplitudes of the remaining pixels are converted to zero. This process gives each of the. pixels the same weight on the cost function. Then, phase adjustment is used to coarsely separate targets in a 2-D image. The second step is the separation of the bulk image into component images using a window of the target size. The third step is a second range-Doppler imaging, in which each ISAR image is enhanced using range alignment and phase adjustment. Simulations using three targets composed of point scattering centers prove that the proposed method can effectively segment three targets flying in a formation.
