In this study, design of a completely unsupervised electromagnetic target classifier will be described based on the use of Self-Organizing Map (SOM) type artificial neural network training and Wigner distribution (WD) based target feature extraction technique. The suggested classification method will be demonstrated for a target library of four dielectric spheres which have exactly the same size but slightly different permittivity values.
