Efficient scheduling for radar resource management

Keith Ing, William Moran (ed.)

Published : 2019


Sensor scheduling and its application in radar has stemmed from the desire to achieve continued improvement in radar capability, particularly for multi-function radar technologies. Adaptive and cognitive radar represent the latest stage in radar evolution, invoking a closed-loop scheduling to replicate the perception-action cycle of cognition. Radar resources are dynamically selected to interrogate the scene before the reflected signals are analysed to inform action in future epochs. Whilst many authors have proposed systems for adaptive and cognitive sensing, the signal processing and computing aspects of modern radar make closed-loop scheduling schemes challenging to realise on the time sc..
