Abstract
The proposed work seeks to clearly demonstrate the advantage of the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar architecture over a similar single-input multiple-output (SIMO) or phased array system; the benefit of applying data-adaptive signal processing techniques in favor of their data-independent counterparts; and the utility of transmitting advanced probing waveforms as opposed to conventional ones. These advantages will be demonstrated through experimentation with a 2x6 MIMO radar prototype, that is capable of operating in either a SIMO or MIMO mode, and can transmit arbitrary waveforms. The experiments carried out will be approximations to challenging scenarios, such as closely spaced targets in range or bearing. The data collected during the experiments will then be processed to provide clear evidence of the aforementioned technologies.
