Abstract

Target recognition through the processing of high-resolution radar images has been an active research area in past decades. In this paper, dictionary sets parameterized by the two-dimensional (2-D) location parameters of main high-energy scatterers are considered to recognize the candidate targets. For this purpose, the scatterer extraction and orientation estimation of radar image are firstly provided in this paper. Furthermore, the recognition method based on the parameterized dictionary sets is subsequently proposed. Different from the existed recognition methods, only the sampled images at the 2-D location parameters of main high-energy scatterers are used in the proposed method. Consequently, the noise or clutter outside the sampling locations can be filtered, which results in more robust performance. Moreover, the 2-D location parameters are proportional to the geometrical structure, and the proposed method is adaptive to the scale variation of the target images. Simulated results are provided to demonstrate the proposed method.
