Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Secondary motions of targets observed by radar introduce non-stationary returns containing the so-called micro-Doppler information. This is characterizing information that can be exploited to enhance automatic target recognition systems. In this paper, the challenge of classifying the micro-Doppler return of helicopters is addressed. A robust dictionary learning algorithm, Label Consistent K-SVD (LC-KSVD), is applied to identify effectively and efficiently helicopters. The effectiveness of the proposed algorithm is demonstrated on both synthetic and real radar data.
