In this work a generalised signal model is presented to accommodate both narrowband and wideband signals in a multi-input multi-output (MIMO) sensor system scenarios. The derived model is then used to define a MIMO ambiguity function (AF) based on the Kullback-Leibler divergence (KLD). Moreover, the proposed formulation is parametrised using the signal and channel correlation matrices to account for different waveform and sensor placement designs, thereby allowing a flexible modelling approach. A comparison between the proposed definition and the more conventional approach of summing the squared matched filter outputs is presented for different sensors and waveforms configurations.
