Abstract:

We suggest a new interpretation of Woodwards ambiguity function as the expected value of an operator. The operator represents the physics of the interaction of the waveform with the object. This approach provides a new approach to understanding the return signal at the receiver and can reveal more detailed understanding of the underlying interactions within the return signal that are not usually brought out by standard signal processing techniques.
