    The mathematical problem consists of determining the spread of the Fourier transform of function when the function is modified by a multiplicative factor exp j¿(t), where ¿ is a stationary random process. Let F(¿) be the Fourier transform of f(t) and Fm(¿) be the transform of f(t) exp j¿(t). For example, f may be the illumination function of a linear antenna and ¿ accounts for imperfect phas...

  • The Amplitude Statistics of Aircraft Radar Echoes

    Publication Year: 1965, Page(s):10 - 16
    Cited by:  Papers (11)

    Recorded CW radar echoes from a number of aircraft have been analyzed to determine the characteristics of the amplitude fluctuations and the extent to which these vary among different aircraft. The statistics of the echoes from four targets (two jets and two piston aircraft) were found to exhibit marked similarities; typically, the echo power was exponentially distributed, with a correlation time ...

  • The Effect of Limiting on the Detectability of Partially Time-Coincident Pulse Compression Signals

    Publication Year: 1965, Page(s):17 - 24

    Analytic approximations are derived to describe the effect of band-pass limiting on the detectability of partially time-coincident pulse compression signals. These are applied to the practical radar case of a fixed threshold decision criterion, which effectively becomes an equivalent variable threshold in any region in which a strong signal controls the limiter action. The suppression and gain con... View full abstract»

  • Radar Frequency Modulations for Accelerating Targets under a Bandwidth Constraint

    Publication Year: 1965, Page(s):25 - 32
    Cited by:  Papers (11)

    An optimum frequency modulation for estimating the range, range rate, and range acceleration of a moving target is derived. The criterion of optimality is based on the estimate variances which are evaluated under the following assumptions: 1) additive white Gaussian observation noise, 2) high signal-to-noise ratio, 3) maximum-likelihood processing (matched filters), 4) RF phase used only for the r...

  • A Technique for the Generation of Highly Linear FM Pulse Radar Signals

    Publication Year: 1965, Page(s):32 - 38

    Some radar systems employing a linear FM pulse require FM linearity not easily obtainable from present generation methods. A technique is developed whereby average linearities of better than 0.1 per cent may be realized by active generation methods. Two methods of implementation are described that synthesize the waveform by generating a staircase-type stepped FM waveform and "filling in" the steps... View full abstract»

  • Measurements of UHF and L-Band Radar Clutter in the Central Pacific Ocean

    Measurements of clutter with the TRADEX radar at UHF and L band are described. Clutter is shown to be due to sea return and returns from clouds. Sea clutter predominates at ranges less than 13 nmi, values of ¿0 of -100 dB being typical at both frequencies. Coherent scattering from clouds is postulated, and the observed frequency independence of the cloud retums is offered as supporting evidence. ... View full abstract»

  • On Detection and Estimation of Wave Fields for Surveillance

    This paper considers the detection and estimation of a signal field in the presence of a noise field. The wave field, which is a continuous space-time function, is converted into a discrete set of time functions by an array of transducer elements which convert the physical field quantities into other quantities appropriate for processing. The resulting set of time functions makes up a vector rando... View full abstract»

  • Matched-Filter Theory for High-Velocity, Accelerating Targets

    Two modifications of the conventional radar theory of matched filters and ambiguity functions are discussed. The first modification is to make the theory valid for high-velocity targets and wide-band signals, and the second is to include the effects of acceleration. The ability of a radar to measure target acceleration has previously been discussed in terms of measurement accuracy for isolated tar... View full abstract»
