Cognitive radar is a new paradigm to conceive the next radar generation characterized by unique and amazing features inspired to mental abilities and processes related to knowledge. It goes beyond the usual extraction of information from the measurements and requires the radar to get intelligence. Introduced by Haykin [1] and Guerci [2], it is attracting huge attention within the radar community during the last few years. The key concept is that radar system performance can be enhanced through a continuous and coordinated feedback between the transmitter and receiver which implies a dynamic adaptation of the sensor algorithms to the operational context and environmental replies. This paper discusses the biological inspiring principles of cognitive radar and describes the resulting conceptual architecture.

Abstract

Cognitive radar is a new paradigm to conceive the next radar generation characterized by unique and amazing features inspired to mental abilities and processes related to knowledge. It goes beyond the usual extraction of information from the measurements and requires the radar to get intelligence. Introduced by Haykin [1] and Guerci [2], it is attracting huge attention within the radar community during the last few years. The key concept is that radar system performance can be enhanced through a continuous and coordinated feedback between the transmitter and receiver which implies a dynamic adaptation of the sensor algorithms to the operational context and environmental replies. This paper discusses the biological inspiring principles of cognitive radar and describes the resulting conceptual architecture. Then, a radar signal processing application, which can significantly benefit from cognition, is illustrated highlighting the potential performance improvements achievable with the awesome pro-active paradigm.
