Abstract:

This report provides an initial investigation into the technology of impulse radar. The principal purpose is to provide a road map for exploratory development by defining critical technology issues for a research investment strategy. There are urgent requirements for improving radar capability for target identification, or noncooperative target recognition NCTR. Progress in NCTR has been primarily in information processing, with few technology advances in the sensor domain. Impulse radar provides new and revolutionary ideas, which can offer new capabilities for active surveillance. These capabilities are discussed in this report along with issues that must be resolved before system development is undertaken.
