Title: Radar Detection for Low-observable Moving Target at Sea 

Abstract: Detection of low-observable moving target in sea clutter is an important issue for both civil and military applications. Targets covered by sea clutter with low observability are main threats to maritime observation systems and detection of these targets gives a severe challenge to radar survivability. Moreover, the detection process is difficult due to the weak radar returns and complex sea environment. Low-observable marine targets include low attitude, slow moving, small size, highly maneuvering, and stealthy targets. Their radar returns have a common characteristic, i.e., low signal-to-clutter ratio in time and frequency domains. In recent years, with the development of radar systems and radar signal processing technology, radar has the ability to acquire refined target features. And some newly developed theories, e.g., micro-Doppler, long-time coherent integration, sparse time-frequency transform, deep learning, etc., provide novel solutions for marine target detection and recognition. This talk will summarize and expound the connotation and characteristics of low-observable moving targets at sea, the challenges for radar detection, and the key technologies of refined and intelligent processing. Combined with the measured data of radar, it also provides some possible solutions for engineering applications.
