An efficient version of the E-pulse method is discussed and generalized in the context of radar target pole retrieval from scattered field. Its relation to the generalized Prony’s method is investigated. It is shown that the E-pulse method can be efficiently implemented via a smoothing and sampling procedure and a Prony’s approach. The trade-off between noise insensitivity and computational burden influenced by various parameters is pointed out.
