Abstract:

The report presents the results of a theoretical and experimental investigation into the effects of pseudo-random noise upon the performance of a search radar system. The study considers the theory of pseudo-random noise as formed by maximum-length sequences. The sequences themselves are generated by digital shift registers using linear feedback networks. The results of this effort are then applied in an effectiveness study which relates the parameters of a pseudo-random noise generator to the performance of a generic search radar. The study and subsequent simulator experiments show that the effects of the pseudo-random noise upon radar receiver performance are strongly dependent upon the design and control of the noise generator.
