A technique for improving the electromagnetic compatibility of a radar system with respect to its operating electromagnetic environment and to assess RF spectrum usage is presented. The technique involves the use of the ambiguity diagram derived from the waveform and the construction of environinental diagrams for the radar. Overlays of the ambiguity diagram upon the environmental diagram, along desired target trajectories, provide a pictorial view by which EMC analysis and spectrum usage can be interpreted. The technique lends itself to the early phases in radar concept or development where waveform design can be modified. The technique also lends itself to assessing design towards receivÃ¿r interference rejection. Only nominal system parameter data is required for implementation.
