Abstract:

The report contains the results of an investigation of optimum techniques for detecting and discriminating backscattered electromagnetic radiation associated with the impulse radar concept. The study reported herein is divided into three areas of investigation. The first of these is a study of backscatter in which several waveform variations for the sphere, rectangular plate, and thin rod geometries were determined mathematically tractable expressions for the scattered energy from typical geometrical shapes. The second part of this program involved the development of several optimal-like filter configurations based upon a knowledge of the characteristics of the waveforms of interest. Finally, the geometry identification problem was investigated.
