The problem of sidelobe suppression for stepped frequency continuous-wave (SFCW) radar is addressed. A sidelobe suppression algorithm is proposed via the reiterative minimum mean-square error strategy, where a minimum mean-square error filter is designed for each range cell. The performance of the proposed algorithm is assessed by simulations and real data. Results show that the proposed algorithm can successfully suppress range sidelobes to the level of noise for SFCW radar.

    The extension of the dynamic range performance of existing radar systems is integral to the requirement for current sensors to see deeper into clutter, that is, to detect weak signals (e.g. small targets) in the presence of strong interference (e.g. urban clutter signals). The rationale behind...
