Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this chapter we discussed the optimization of multiple waveforms for multiple targets under joint power constraint. This type of waveform design is suitable for unresolved extended targets. We have derived computationally efficient algorithms and presented the result of the optimization in simulations. Further results, as well as design of a single waveform optimized for multiple targets, can be found in [12]. The combination of waveform design and direction-of-arrival estimation is discussed in [13].
