Sparsity-Inducing Super-Resolution Passive Radar Imaging with Illuminators of Opportunity
AbstractMultiple illuminators of opportunity (IOs) and a large rotation angle are often required for current passive radar imaging techniques. However, a large rotation angle demands a long observation time, which cannot be implemented for actual passive radar system. To overcome this disadvantage, this paper proposes a super-resolution passive radar imaging framework with a sparsity-inducing compressed sensing (CS) technique, which allows for fewer IOs and a smaller rotation angle. In the proposed imaging framework, the sparsity-based passive radar imaging is modeled mathematically, and the spatial frequencies and amplitudes of different scatterers on the target are recovered by the log-sum penalty function-based CS reconstruction algorithm. In doing so, a super-resolution passive radar imagery is obtained by the frequency searching approach. Simulation results not only validate that the proposed method outperforms existing super-resolution algorithms, such as ESPRIT and RELAX, especially in the cases with low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and limited number of measurements, but also have shown that our proposed method can perform robust reconstruction no matter if the target is on grid or not.
