Linear passive filters which decrease the duration of a frequency modulated pulse pulse compression filters are finding increasing application in radar and scanning receiver systems. This report describes the design, construction, and performance of several com pression filters intended for use in a particular scanning receiver. These filters were designed to compress pulses in which the frequency varies linearly with time between 1 Gc. and 2 Gc., nominally at a rate of 20 Megacycles per second per nanosecond. The intent of this report is not to exhaustively treat each type of filter, but rather to provide a variety of possible approaches to compression filter realization, to provide design information, and to weigh some of the advantages and disadvantages of each type of filter. Although the filters described here are designed for a particular scan rate and frequency range, a similar approach could be used over a wide range of system parameters. With this in mind, an effort has been made to present design data in such a way as not to limit its generality or applicability.
