# APPLICATION OF MATHEMATICAL TRANSFORM IN DETECTION ALGORITHMS

#### Abstract

Recent trends in the design of highly efficient and fully automated systems for processing radar data in terms of a priori uncertainty about the targets and disturbances are causing the researchers to use the latest achievements in the design of real time computing architectures for optimum realization and high performance. The development of new algorithms that can be used to retrieve information about targets, applying a mathematical transformation on the received signals yielding estimates of the parameters of moving targets with extremely high precision in a dynamically changing radar environment is a new and very promising direction in modern information and communication technologies. This article discusses such an approach applying the Hough transform to determine the coordinates of the targets. The approach uses a finite set of preselected patterns of the target movement. The Hough transform, translates the set of measurements received in the space of patterns. Association to one or another specific pattern is done estimating the information about the coordinates extracted from the received signals. Thus the moving target parameters in the surveillance zone are uniquely determined by the parameters of the pattern.
