Dealing with real data it is likely that it will exhibit the presence of unexpected observations within the data which can affect the correct reduction of the representative features of a target signature. For the speciffc case of micro-Doppler based classiffcation this problem can appear in the feature selection stage. To address this problem the Robust PCA based on the Minimum Covariance Determinant (MCD) estimator is introduced. The proposed technique showed to improve the overall classiffcation accuracy.
