Abstract

Use of multiple transmit and receive antennas have become a popular research area in radar community after the success of the same concept in communication. It is shown by Fishler et al. that multi-input multi-output (MIMO) radar has considerable advantages compared to traditional radar and phased array radar systems. In this paper, detection performance of MIMO radar using Neyman-Pearson detector is investigated in K-distributed sea clutter for a practical scenario. Also, spikiness of K-distributed MIMO radar clutter is discussed with respect to the number of nodes.
