Abstract:

An algorithm is presented for implementing a digital matched filter for periodic and windowed periodic radar waveforms. The algorithm is based on circular convolutional techniques. For moderate to high duty cycles d radar on time to pulse repetition interval PRI ratio, the circular convolutional algorithm uses 50 fewer complex multiply operations CMOPs than does a fast convolution implementation. In fact, if BPRI is the radar waveform bandwidth-PRI product, then the circular convolutional technique is numerically more efficient if d 1sq. rt8BPRI. Furthermore, the circular convolution technique is numerically more efficient when the pulse compression ratio p sq. rt. BPRI8 . Keywords Radar Matched filter Waveforms.
