Abstract:

There has been recent interest in using short-pulse radar to detect targets in lossy clutter. The analysis presented here shows that the energy and peak-power densities of pulses decay exponentially with depth in homogeneous, lossy, dispersive materials, provided the frequency bands of the pulses are separated from DC. Many numerical examples verify the analytical results.
