Information-Theoretic Characterization and Undersampling Ratio Determination for Compressive Radar Imaging in a Simulated Environment
AbstractAssuming sparsity or compressibility of the underlying signals, compressed sensing or compressive sampling (CS) exploits the informational efficiency of under-sampled measurements for increased efficiency yet acceptable accuracy in information gathering, transmission and processing, though it often incurs extra computational cost in signal reconstruction. Shannon information quantities and theorems, such as source rate-distortion, trans-information and rate distortion theorem concerning lossy data compression, provide a coherent framework, which is complementary to classic CS theory, for analyzing informational quantities and for determining the necessary number of measurements in CS. While there exists some information-theoretic research in the past on CS in general and compressive radar imaging in particular, systematic research is needed to handle issues related to scene description in cluttered environments and trans-information quantification in complex sparsity-clutter-sampling-noise settings. The novelty of this paper lies in furnishing a general strategy for information-theoretic analysis of scene compressibility, trans-information of radar echo data about the scene and the targets of interest, respectively, and limits to undersampling ratios necessary for scene reconstruction subject to distortion given sparsity-clutter-noise constraints. A computational experiment was performed to demonstrate informational analysis regarding the scene-sampling-reconstruction process and to generate phase transition diagrams showing relations between undersampling ratios and sparsity-clutter-noise-distortion constraints. The strategy proposed in this paper is valuable for information-theoretic analysis and undersampling theorem developments in compressive radar imaging and other computational imaging applications.
