Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

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.
