Mimo technology in multi-radar systems for detecting stealthy air objects

Keywords: Radar, MIMO technology, multi-radar system, air object, radar cross section, detection, radar information


The main trends in the development of air objects are analyzed (the means of air attack in the conduct of the Russian-Ukrainian war are taken as a basis). It has been established that the increase in the efficiency of radar surveillance of airspace is currently being carried out due to the quantitative increase in radar stations. In this paper, to improve the quality of detection of subtle air objects, the use of multi-position location (based on MIMO systems) is proposed. The principle of operation of a spatially coherent MIMO system is considered. The set of spaced positions of a spatially coherent multi-position system is considered as a single sparse antenna array. The possibility of increasing the resolution in planar coordinates in a MIMO system compared to the resolution of a single autonomous radar station is shown. The calculated ratio for increasing the resolution of such a system is given. Detection curves are given for the case of a spatially coherent MIMO radar system for the case when the radar stations of the system operate simultaneously in the transceiver mode. It has been established that the transition from an autonomous radar station to a MIMO system leads to a significant shift in detection characteristics to the left. It has been established that an increase in the number of radar stations in the system leads to a less significant shift in the detection characteristics to the left, which indicates a decrease in the effect. The radar systems proposed by MIMO can be built on the basis of existing radar stations of a predominantly new fleet. It is especially advantageous to use radar facilities based on phased antenna arrays for these purposes. It is advisable to use such systems in particularly dangerous areas to cover important military, government and critical infrastructure facilities
