Passive receivers can be used to detect radar emissions over considerable distances. If range resolution requirements are fixed, it is of interest to compare the detectability of equal-bandwidth/equal-energy waveforms regardless of their time duration. Relative detection ranges are predicted, via computer simulation, for two types of transmitted waveforms: a benchmark rectangular pulse and a Welti binary coded waveform. The waveforms will be detected by square-law, delay and multiply, wideband… CONTINUE READING
