This paper presents the application of an electromagnetic target recognition method based on natural resonance mechanism and MUSIC algorithm to the target sets containing single amd multi-targets. The simpler case of the proposed method was applied to single targets previously and successful results were obtained [1]. However, when multi-targets are added to the test target set, the method needs crucial modifications and these modifications are mentioned in detail in this study. Owing to these modifications, the method becomes highly invariant to aspect angle and the distance between the multiple targets observed at once. The final version of the mentioned method is applied for the recognition of a target set containing single and multiple perfectly conducting spheres and sufficient accuracy rates are obtained even for low signal-to-noise ratios.
