AN OUTPUT EXPRESSION FOR A DISPERSIVE DELAY PULSE COMPRESSION FILTER UNDER ARBITRARY INPUTS.

Pagination or Media Count:
Pulse compression filters are used extensively in modern radar systems. The nature of output waveforms from dispersive delay pulse compression filters driven by specific matched input waveforms has been studied in great detail for these radar applications. However, little work has been done to generalize these results. This paper obtains an expression for the filter output in terms of arbitrary input signals. Several particular input waveforms are analyzed using an ideal filter with assumed specific characteristics. In an attempt to indicate trends, different pulse widths and linear frequency modulation rates are assumed for the pulse shapes chosen. The resulting output envelopes are plotted graphically. Author
