Abstract

Toward a maritime surveillance objective, many ship detection and tracking algorithms have been investigated but are faced with poor performance in practical ocean environments. Compact high-frequency (HF) radar has also faced critical issues due to its long coherent processing interval and varying response from its orthogonal antenna structure. Hence, a simulator based on compact HF radar is proposed in this letter to provide a guideline for effective assessment of ship detection and tracking algorithms while considering these practical issues. To validate the proposed simulator, the simulator generated data has been compared with real data obtained by the compact HF radar sites.
