Recent work has continued to study applications of the Weil transform to radar signal processing and, in a parallel effort, to multi-access spread spectrum communications. The main thrust of the work is the relationship between the Weil transform of a waveform and the ambiguity surface of the wave-form. The study of this relationship has led to a fundamental observation the cancellation properties of a waveform necessary for the creation of a thumbtack- like ambiguity surface may be viewed as arising from the pattern of zeros and non-trivial winding numbers of the Weil transform of the waveform. This point of view is exposited and used to reinterpret classical radar waveform design techniques, while also providing a new method for radar waveform design. Additionally, a new technique for modifying or shaping waveforms has been developed. This consists of changing a wave-form by multiplying its Weil transform by doubly-periodic functions and taking the inverse Weil transform to produce a new signal.
