In this work to exploit the benefits of both multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO)-radar and phased-array a waveform covariance matrix is proposed. Our analytical results show that the proposed covariance matrix yields gain in signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) compared to MIMO-radar while the gain in SINR is close to phased-array and recently proposed phased-MIMO scheme. Transmitted waveforms with the proposed covariance matrix, at the receiver, significantly supress the side-lobe levels compared to phased-array, MIMO-radar, and phased-MIMO schemes. Moreover, in contrast to phased-MIMO our proposed scheme allows same power transmission from each antenna. Simulation results validate the analytical results. © 2013 IEEE.
