Abstract

In this paper, tracking performnace of MIMO radar systems with distributed antennas and non-coherent processing is studied. The Bayesian Cramer-Rao bound (BCRB) on target location and velocity tracking is derived and the effect of the radars geometric layout and the target location on tracking accuracies is analyzed. The impact of the number of radars on the estimation errors is examined and the contribution of the target reflectivity and path loss to tracking performance is evaluated.
