A New Radar Waveform Design Algorithm with Improved Feasibility for Spectral Coexistence

You are here

Radar signal design in a spectrally crowded environment is currently a challenge due to the increasing request of spectrum from both military sensing applications and civilian wireless services. The goal of this paper is to improve a previously devised algorithm for the synthesis of optimized radar waveforms fulfilling spectral compatibility with overlayed licensed radiators. The new technique achieves an enhanced spectral coexistence with the surrounding electromagnetic environment through a suitable modulation of the transmitted waveform energy which was kept fixed at the maximum level in. At the analysis stage, the waveform performance is studied in terms of trade-off among the achievable Signal to Interference plus Noise Ratio (SINR), spectral shape, and the resulting AutoCorrelation Function (ACF), also in situations where the technique of cannot be applied.
