The micro-Doppler (m-D) effect induced by the rotating parts or vibrations of the target provides a new approach for target recognition. To obtain high range resolution for the extraction of the fine m-D signatures of an inverse synthetic aperture radar target, the stepped-frequency chirp signal (SFCS) is used to synthesize the ultrabroad bandwidth and reduce the requirement of sample rates. In this paper, the m-D effect in SFCS is analyzed. The analytical expressions of the m-D signatures, which are extracted by an improved Hough transform method associated with time-frequency analysis, are deduced on the range-slow-time plane. The implementation of the algorithm is presented, particularly in those extreme cases of rotating (vibrating) frequencies and radii. The simulations validate the theoretical formulation and robustness of the proposed m-D extraction method.
