A Novel Pulse Compressio Minimum Mean-Square

  title={A Novel Pulse Compressio Minimum Mean-Square},
  author={Shannon D. Blu and Karl Gerlach},
This paper presents an alternative approach to pulse compression that is based upon iterative Minimum MeanSquare Error (MMSE) estimation. It is similar to the wellknown least squares (LS) approach but does not suffer from the adverse effects caused by scatterers closer than some nominal range. This results in a more robust estimate of the radar returns while maintaining nearly the same sidelobe level. Furthermore, the proposed pulse compression scheme is highly parallelizable in range and… CONTINUE READING
