Subspace-based direction finding using transmit energy focusing in MIMO radar with colocated antennas
In this paper, we consider the problem of direction finding in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar based on focusing the transmitted pulse energy within certain spatial sector(s). We propose a method for designing the transmit weight matrix based on maximizing the energy transmitted within the desired spatial sector and minimizing the energy disseminated in the out-of-sector area. The proposed transmit energy focusing results in the signal-to-noise ratio increase at the receive array which in turn leads to lower Cramer-Rao bound and improved direction of arrival estimation performance. Simulation results show the substantial improvements offered by the proposed transmit energy focusing based MIMO radar as compared to the traditional MIMO radar and the MIMO radar with receive beamspace post-processing.
