The approach of alternating the transmission between a leading and a trailing antenna sub-aperture from pulse to pulse (ALTX) is presented for radar systems equipped with digital beam forming. ALTX is shown to improve detection and DOA estimation performance with respect to standard transmission with the whole antenna aperture for systems with a short antenna array and a limited number of receiving channels.
