Space-time adaptive processing (STAP) techniques have
been motivated as a key enabling technology for advanced airborne
radar applications. In this paper, the notion of cognitive radar is
extended to STAP technique, and cognitive STAP is discussed.
The principle for improving signal-to-clutter ratio (SCNR) based
on slow-time coding is given, and the corresponding optimization
algorithm based on cyclic and power-like algorithms is presented.
Numerical examples show the effectiveness of the proposed method.
