In this paper, a feature fusion algorithm is proposed for automatic target recognition based on High Resolution Range Profiles (HRRP). The proposed algorithm employs Convolution Neural Network (CNN) to extract fused feature from the time-frequency features of HRRP automatically. The time-frequency features used include linear transform and bilinear transform. The coding of the CNN's largest output node is the target category, and the output is compared with a threshold to decide whether the
