The networking paradigm of spectrum sharing is a promising technology to solve the spectrum paucity that has resulted from the exponential increase in the number of wireless devices and ubiquitous services. In light of the novel concept of Authorized/Licensed Shared Access, in this work, we consider the spectrum sharing between a colocated multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) radar and a full-duplex (FD) MIMO cellular communication system consisting of a FD base station (BS) serving multiple downlink and uplink users simultaneously, without hindering the detection probability of the radar. The main objective is to develop an optimization technique at the cellular system for jointly designing the transceiver for the cellular BS and power allocation vectors for uplink users that can maximize the detection probability of radar, while guaranteeing a pre-defined quality-of-service for each user and power budget for the uplink users and BS. The original problem is non-convex and thus, we convert the non-convex problem into a second-order cone and propose an iterative algorithm to find the optimal solution. Numerical results are then provided to demonstrate the feasibility of the spectral coexistence and show a scalable trade-off in performance of both systems.
