A method range sidelobes control for a MIMO radar






Multiple-input; Multiple-output radar (MIMO) Radar; SNR; ISR.


MIMO radars allow to transmit multiple waveforms from separate sources in space, range-sidelobe performance will be degraded by the cross-correlation between aveforms. This paper presents a new mismatched-filtering approach for designing optimal filters that minimize the integrated sidelobe ratio for MIMO radar.
