Abstract : Previous research has demonstrated the feasibility of using multiple low frequency radar returns for aircraft target classification. The surfaces corresponding to this aircraft data in frequency space have been represented by a bilinear approximation. This surface representation has allowed the identification of the regions where two surfaces might intersect, and other regions where classification becomes difficult. Several classification methods are investigated using the bilinear surface approximation, and the results of a simulation study are reported. (Author)
