Abstract

The challenge of ballistic missiles classification is getting greater importance in last years. In fact, since the antimissile defence systems have generally a limited number of interceptors, it is important to distinguish between warheads and confusing objects that the missile releases during its flight, in order to maximize the interception success ratio. For this aim, a novel micro-Doppler based classification technique is presented in this paper characterized by the employment of Krawtchouk moments. Since the evaluation of the latter requires a low computational time, the proposed approach is suitable for real time applications. Finally, a comparison with the 2-dimensional Gabor filter based approach is described by testing both the techniques on real radar data.
