Abstract

Disambiguation in range and velocity is a key aspect of target detection in medium PRF radar systems. In this work, the DBSCAN clustering algorithm is applied to the disambiguation problem. The algorithm has been tested on raw range/doppler data collected from the venerable APG-66 radar system with good results.
