We consider waveform design for multiple-input, multiple-output radar systems for the case where the signal, during propagation, undergoes phase perturbations. We formulate an iterative algorithm to obtain both waveform parameters and the weights of the adaptive matched filter. An example of a clutter and target model is provided to show how the optimal waveform design improves the detection performance of a random-phase radar compared to traditional waveforms.
