Due to the data transmission requirements in traditional orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) radars, the phase-coded OFDM (PC-OFDM) waveforms in which the PC sequence is controlled via transmitted messages are presented for radar-communication integrated applications. A radar data processing algorithm that achieves high range resolution profile (HRRP) for the single-scatter-point target is presented. Theoretical and numerical results show that, the proposed method can achieve HRRP on target detection along with the relative high data rate wireless communications.
