Abstract

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>This article presents an important task of classification, i.e. mapping surfaces which separate patterns in feature space in the scope of radar emitter recognition (RER) and classification. Assigning a tested radar to a particular class is based on defining its location from the discriminating areas. In order to carry out the classification process, it is necessary to define metrics in the feature space as it is essential to estimate the distance of a classified radar from the centre of the class. The method presented in this article is based on extraction and selection of distinctive features, which can be received in the process of specific emitter identification (SEI) of radar signals, and on the minimum distance classification. The author suggests a RER system which consists of a few independent channels. The task of each channel is to calculate the distance of the tested radar from a given class and finally, set the correct identification coefficient for each recognized radar. Thus, a multichannel system with independent distance measurement is obtained, which makes it possible to recognize particular radar copies. This system is implemented in electronic intelligence (ELINT) system and tested in real battlefield conditions.</jats:p>
