In this paper we propose a stepped-FM array radar system that can precisely estimate the target position by combining S- and T-MUSIC and adaptive beamforming. By adopting the adaptive beamformer as a preprocessor of T-MUSIC, the proposed system can uniquely determine the direction and distance of targets. In addition, the distance estimation precision is improved by introducing beamformer.
