New Methods of Designing Optimum Broad-Band Radar Signals

  • Ovarlez Jean-Philippe
  • Dulost Jacques


In radar or sonar, estimating the parameters such as the velocity or the position of a target is often a delicate problem. Let z(t) be the transmitted and analytic signal with a constant propagation velocity c. The echo x(t) reflected from a target moving with velocity v can be expressed as:
