Abstract
This work considers the detection of high-velocity targets for naval phased array radar. The detection performance of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar with orthogonal waveforms is compared to that of a radar using a directed beam. An analytical expression for the probability of detection for a radar with a multiple element array is derived. For high velocity targets, the decrease in probability of detection due to the longer integration time required for MIMO radar is quantified. It is shown that for lower-velocity targets, sector search using orthogonal waveforms results in higher detection range. For higher-velocity targets, the use of scanning directed beams yields higher detection range.
