This paper presents the application of an electromagnetic target recognition method based on natural resonance mechanism and MUSIC algorithm to the target sets containing single amd multi-targets. The simpler case of the proposed method was applied to single targets previously and successful results were obtained [1]. However, when multi-targets are added to the test target set, the method needs crucial modifications and these modifications are mentioned in detail in this study. Owing to these modifications, the method becomes highly invariant to aspect angle and the distance between the multiple targets observed at once. The final version of the mentioned method is applied for the recognition of a target set containing single and multiple perfectly conducting spheres and sufficient accuracy rates are obtained even for low signal-to-noise ratios.

Further developments in the dynamic stiffness matrix (DSM) based direct damping identification method
Özgen, Gökhan Osman (2005-01-01)
Theoretical development of a dynamic stiffness matrix (DSM) based direct damping matrix identification method is revisited in this paper. This method was proposed to identify both the mechanism and spatial distribution of damping in dynamic structures as a matrix of general function of frequency. The objective of this paper, in addition to the review of the theoretical development, is to investigate some major issues regarding the feasibility of this method. The first issue investigated is how the errors in...
A new electromagnetic target classification method with MUSIC algorithm
Secmen, Mustafa; Sayan, Gönül (2006-01-01)
This paper introduces a novel method for aspect invariant electromagnetic target recognition based on the use of multiple signal classification (MUSIC) algorithm to extract late-time resonant target features from the ultra-wideband scattered data. This method is mainly based on the usage of MUSIC spectra obtained from electromagnetic scattered data as the target features. This approach achieves very high accuracy rates even at very low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) values although it needs scattered data for ...
The MUSIC algorithm-based electromagnetic target classification for isolated targets from incomplete frequency domain data
Secmen, Mustafa; Sayan, Gönül (2007-06-15)
This paper investigates the performance of a new electromagnetic target classification method to recognize isolated targets in the presence of scattered frequency domain data which may be severely incomplete at low frequencies. The suggested method utilizes multiple signal classification (MUSIC) algorithm to construct approximate pole location maps of the targets without determining the exact pole values. In this work, this method is validated for small-scale aircraft targets modeled by thin, conducting wir...
A novel music algorithm based electromagnetic target recognition method in resonance region for the classification of single and multiple targets
Seçmen, Mustafa; Sayan, Gönül; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
This thesis presents a novel aspect and polarization invariant electromagnetic target recognition technique in resonance region based on use of MUSIC algorithm for the extraction of natural-resonance related target features. In the suggested method, the feature patterns called “MUSIC Spectrum Matrices (MSMs)” are constructed for each candidate target at each reference aspect angle using targets’ scattered data at different late-time intervals. These individual MSMs correspond to maps of targets’ natural-res...
A novel electromagnetic target recognition method by MUSIC algorithm
Secmen, Mustafa; Sayan, Gönül (2006-12-01)
This paper introduces a novel method for aspect invariant electromagnetic target recognition based on the use of multiple signal classification (MUSIC) algorithm to extract late-time resonant target features from the ultra-wideband scattered data. This approach achieves very high accuracy rates even at very low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) values although it needs scattered data for classifier design at only a few different aspects and makes use of the MUSIC algorithm in a simple and computationally efficien...
