Properties of the MIMO radar ambiguity function
—MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) radar is an emerging technology which has drawn considerable attention. Unlike the traditional SIMO (single-input multiple-output) radar, which transmits scaled versions of a single waveform in the antenna elements, the MIMO radar transmits independent waveforms in each of the antenna elements. It has been shown that MIMO radar systems have many advantages such as high spatial resolution, improved parameter identifiability, and enhanced flexibility for transmit beampattern design. In the traditional SIMO radar, the range and Doppler resolutions can be characterized by the radar ambiguity function. It is a major tool for studying and analyzing radar signals. Recently, the ambiguity function has been extended to the MIMO radar case. In this paper, some mathematical properties of the MIMO radar ambiguity function are derived. These properties provide insights into the MIMO radar waveform design. 1
