Abstract
In Electronic Support Measures (ESM) systems, intrapulse analysis has gained much interest in the development of pulse train deinterleaving techniques due to its ability to handle complex radar signals. In this report, an approach for detecting the number of emitters is proposed based on the use of intrapulse information of the intercepted pulse trains. The approach is an application of the information theoretic criteria. It exploits the fine intrapulse modulation information of emitter signal and has the advantage of not requiring a subjective threshold setting. The approach is statistically consistent and computationally efficient. Computer simulations and real sensor data are used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
