For high-resolution direction of arrival estimation, a wide aperture is necessary. This can be achieved with multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radars, which offer a wide virtual aperture. However, the requirement of orthogonal transmit signals has to be satisfied for their operation. Although time division multiplexing (TDM) of the transmit elements is an orthogonality realization with low hardware effort, phase errors occur in non- stationary scenarios. This work briefly discusses the problem of the motion-induced phase errors and describes processing steps to mitigate them without additional effort. The proposed technique is demonstrated with simulation and measurement data.
