This article presents a new fine Doppler frequency estimation method of complex sinusoidal signals for radar systems. The proposed method can work with nonrectangular window functions to suppress the interference signal caused by the undesired spectral leakage. This method is based on an interpolation curve that uses the sum and difference of two discrete Fourier transform (DFT) magnitudes, and can estimate an accurate frequency between the interpolation curve samples through precise linear approximation. The proposed method exhibits lower computational complexity than the conventional method, which compensates the bias of an arbitrary window function and exhibits high performance. Thus, the proposed method is applicable to radar systems requiring fast processing time. Furthermore, the simulation results show that the proposed method outperforms the conventional method for various window functions.
