Micro-Doppler signatures provide unique information about properties of the target. These micro-Doppler features can be used for real time target recognition in military applications and surveillance operations. In this paper, we present Gabor-Wigner transform for extracting micro- Doppler features from the radar returns. The effectiveness of the Gabor-Wigner transform in extracting micro-Doppler features has been compared with short-time Fourier transform, Wigner Distribution and S-method. The efficiency of the Gabor-Wigner transform in micro-Doppler feature extraction is demonstrated by applying it to different experimental data sets.
