Also the phase of the beat signal data was linear with respect to time. Radar is a detection system that uses radio waves to determine the range, angle, or velocity of objects. It can be used to detect aircraft, ships, spacecraft, guided missiles, motor vehicles, weather formations, and terrain.A radar system consists of a transmitter producing electromagnetic waves in the radio or microwaves domain, a transmitting antenna, a receiving antenna (often the same.

Since, for ultra wideband radar waveforms, the transmitted signal is a baseband signal without sinusoidal carrier, the Ambiguity Function for this kind of waveform should be generated by Doppler processing in the time domain rather than in the frequency domain, as is done for conventional radar waveforms.

The generalized ambiguity function of a random ultra wide waveform can be defined from the cross-correlation between the waveform and a time-scaled and delayed version of it, where the time scaling is related to the relative velocity of the target and the delay to the range.

As a result of the randomness, the ambiguity function fluctuates between different realizations.

signal-filter pair, there are transformations of signal and filter that will not affect certain properties of the ambiguity function. Such transformations suggest the existence of alter- native waveforms that will satisfy a particular range- Doppler resolution requirement.

[25]. Recently, San Antonio, et al. [6] have extended the radar ambiguity function to the MIMO radar case. It turns out that the radar waveforms affect not only the range and Doppler resolution but also the angular resolution. It is well-known that the radar ambiguity function satisﬁes some properties such.

In pulsed radar and sonar signal processing, an ambiguity function is a two-dimensional function of time delay and Doppler frequency (,) showing the distortion of a returned pulse due to the receiver matched filter (commonly, but not exclusively, used in pulse compression radar) due to the Doppler shift of the return from a moving target.

The ambiguity function is determined by the properties. Title: Ambiguity function of the transmit beamspace-based MIMO radar Date: Language: English Number of pages: 8+60 Department of Signal Processing and Acoustics Professorship: Signal processing technology Code: S Supervisor and advisor: Prof.
