The Wigner-Ville Hough transform (WVHT) is suboptimal in the detection and parameter estimation of linear frequency-modulated (LFM) continuous wave (LFMCW) low probability of intercept (LPI) radar waveforms because they are composed of concatenated LFM pulses. We formulate the detection and estimation problem to take into account the multiple pulses that are available in an observation interval at the intercept receiver. The new algorithm, called the periodic WVHT (PWVHT), significantly outperforms the WVHT for LFMCW signals.
