Wideband waveform design for robust target detection
Paper in proceedings, 2015

© 2015 IEEE. Future radar systems are expected to use waveforms of a high bandwidth, with an advantage of an improved range resolution. Herein, a technique to design robust wideband waveforms is developed. The context is detection of a single object with partially unknown parameters. The technique achieves an optimal detection speed for a desired resolution, maintaining a high detection performance. Many radar systems also require fast adaptation to a variable environment. Hence, the technique is devoted to rapidly design waveforms. In terms of probabilities of detection and false alarm, numerical evaluation shows the efficiency of the method when compared with a chirp signal and a Gaussian pulse.
