This research considers the linear-FM (LFM) of a noise radar waveform for resolving targets when channel noise and four popular radar sidelobe weighting functions are considered. By using large time-bandwidth products and systematically varying the phase scaling factor κ, results from the digital matched filter output provide evidence that the LFM noise waveform 1) has range-Doppler resolution similar to conventional chirp waveforms and 2) has a low probability of intercept (LPI) similar to random noise waveforms. We acquire the results using a computer-based simulation and verify the location of target peaks using the chirp waveform output for both stationary and moving target cases.
