Abstract

Reliable micro-Doppler signature classification requires the use of robust features describing uniquely the micromotion. Moreover, future applications of micro-Doppler classification will require meaningful representation of the observed target by using a limited set of values. In this paper the application of the pseudo-Zernike moments for micro-Doppler classification is introduced demonstrating the effectiveness of the proposed approach by classifying real data. The use of pseudo-Zernike moments allows invariant features to be obtained that are able to discriminate the content of two-dimensional matrices with a small number of coefficients.
