Abstract:

The report reviews briefly the application of ultrashort pulses to imaging radars, and shows the need for an alternate signal processing scheme. A mathematical description and physical interpretation of frequency domain sampling is presented and its application to time scaling and matched filtering is discussed. An experiment to demonstrate the technique is outlined and will be carried out during the next reporting period.
