An Adaptive Feature Learning Model for Sequential Radar High Resolution Range Profile Recognition
AbstractThis paper proposes a new feature learning method for the recognition of radar high resolution range profile (HRRP) sequences. HRRPs from a period of continuous changing aspect angles are jointly modeled and discriminated by a single model named the discriminative infinite restricted Boltzmann machine (Dis-iRBM). Compared with the commonly used hidden Markov model (HMM)-based recognition method for HRRP sequences, which requires efficient preprocessing of the HRRP signal, the proposed method is an end-to-end method of which the input is the raw HRRP sequence, and the output is the label of the target. The proposed model can efficiently capture the global pattern in a sequence, while the HMM can only model local dynamics, which suffers from information loss. Last but not least, the proposed model learns the features of HRRP sequences adaptively according to the complexity of a single HRRP and the length of a HRRP sequence. Experimental results on the Moving and Stationary Target Acquisition and Recognition (MSTAR) database indicate that the proposed method is efficient and robust under various conditions.
