In this paper, we consider multiple input multiple output (MIMO) radar waveform design in colored noise. Two information theoretic measures are used as criterions for optimal waveform design under transmitted power constraint. The first one is by maximizing the mutual information between target impulse response and target echoes; the second one is by maximizing the relative entropy between two hypotheses: in the first hypothesis we assume the target is not present in the echoes while in the second hypothesis we assume the target exists in the echoes. We derive optimal solutions for both cases. Interestingly, both optimal solutions require that transmitted waveform should “match” with the target and noise. However, the optimal solutions of the two problems lead to different power allocation strategies.
