The radar target identification can be realized using various target features, such as high resolution range profiles (HRRP) [1-5], synthetic aperture radar (SAR) [6-9] and inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) [10,11] images, natural frequencies [12-16] and the RCS (radar cross section) data [17].
