In radar imaging, for example Inverse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ISAR) imaging, a target can be modeled as a collection of scattering centers in the image domain. A method to improve radar image quality through clutter suppression and localization of scattering centers is presented in this paper. The approach is based on localizing the scattering centers by enforcing sparsity constraints through random compressive sampling of the measured data. Sparsity constraint ratio is chosen as a design parameter to achieve the objective. Results show that significant clutter reduction and improvement in localization of scattering centers are achieved at an optimum sparsity constraint ratio.
