Conjugate directions based order recursive implementation of post-Doppler adaptive target detectors

Candan, Çağatay
An implementation for the post-Doppler adaptive target detectors enabling an efficient change of the subspace dimension is described. The proposed implementation uses the order recursive structure of the conjugate directions method and does not present any additional computational burden on the processor. The implementation can be particularly useful for the adaptive detectors with an indeterminate number of auxiliary vectors for the clutter covariance matrix estimation. Through the proposed method, the subspace dimension can be easily increased or decreased according to the multiplicity of the auxiliary vectors at no loss of computational efficiency.
