In this paper, an alternative target density function (TDF) is proposed to image the radar targets in a dense target environment. It is produced by wavelet theory considering a new range and angle plane different from the conventional methods. It is shown that wavelet theory can be used as approach to imaging by active sensors by transmitting a waveform which is a kernel for this transform such as a window function. Although the imaging is obtained via the phased array radars, the problem associated with beamforming in linear phased array radar system is bypassed in this new algorithm.
