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:


Modulation Index Fisher Information Matrix Velocity Resolution Time Delay Estimate Mellin Space 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
