Abstract: This paper addresses the problem of coded waveform design for Multiple Input - Multiple Output (MIMO) radar systems. The paper proposes a signal model based on the assumption of a small array aperture relative to the signal wavelength and a single target in far field. It is argued that near maximum likelihood performance can be obtained by choosing the transmitted waveforms on different antennas to be orthogonal. The Cramer-Rao Bound (CRB) for estimating the target distance, radial velocity and wavenumber is derived. The paper presents a convex optimisation procedure to yield an optimal energy distribution across the transmitted signals. Simulations demonstrate a reduction in CRB in the order of 25% compared to the use of a random unitary code. The paper concludes by indicating a natural generalisation of the method to optimal design for MIMO tracking radars.
