In this paper, an alternative Target Density Function (TDF) is proposed to image the radar targets in a dense target environment. It is obtained by considering a novel range and scanning angle plane different from the conventional methods. An alternative method is briefly proposed for smoothing the target density function by taking advantage of Walsh functions. 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.
