Abstract:

This report contains a discussion of harmonic analysis, power spectral analysis, stationary and nonstationary stochastic processes, and a description of twenty-seven techniques for power spectral density PSD analysis. A comparison is made of the results of applying these twenty seven PSD methods to simulated nonstationary radar backscatter signals, and conclusions are drawn as to which of the methods is the preferred PSD technique. Part II of this report Memoran dum Report 6 uses the preferred technique to analyze actual data from recordings of radar backscatter from missiles. Author
