In this paper, an auto-target-recognition method based on ISAR image was presented. Three types of features were implemented, namely the Fourier coefficients, the wavelet coefficients and some shape features of the ISAR image. Also, three kinds of classifiers: nearest-neighbour, BP neural network and SVM, are considered. Experimental results showed that the Fourier coefficients with some shape features and the SVM classifier had the best discrimination and the classifcaltion precision can reach to more than 94%.
