Pulse circuits, Radar
The development of pulsed type radar signals is examined, with a brief review of matched filtering. Gated RF, linear and non-linear FM pulse-compression (chirp) and matched filtering of radar signals is reviewed in depth. Emphasis is given to identifying the desirable characteristics of each method. A new method of non-linear FM pulse-compression is introduced; it utilizes the Eigen Function (a form of the raised-cosine family) of functions) as its modulating term. Its properties are then compared to those of the linear and non-linear systems reviewed in the preceding sections. Design considerations for implementation on a surface acoustic wave device are presented.
