Abstract:

This report summarizes linear time-varying systems theory and its application to active sonar signal processing when certain of the parameters are random variables. To keep the analysis within reasonable bounds the random parameters are described by their first- and second-order moments only. The report starts by outlining the theory and follows by describing two possible applications one for the derivation of the scattering function of a moving, turning line target the other in the use of pulse trains to measure scattering functions.
