Channel Influence Mitigation in Pseudo-noise Waveform Design for Radar Applications
MetadataShow full item record
Noise Radar is a rapidly developing technology which uses noise or pseudo-noise waveforms as sounding signals to de- tect targets of interest. The advantages of such waveforms are no range nor velocity ambiguities, the possibility of using continuous waveform and low probability of intercept. However, the noise waveform correlation sidelobes are spread across the entire range–Doppler plane and their level is de- termined by the time-bandwidth product. Such sidelobes limit the detection capability in the multitarget environment. Several algorithms exist that decrease the sidelobe level and thus enhance dynamic range of the radar, but they are very susceptible to distortions in an analogue channel. In this paper the author presents a method to create low-sidelobe waveforms using a filtering algorithm designed for given channel, decreasing the analogue front-end impact on the final properties of the waveforms.
