The Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) random noise radar (RNR) implements an ultrawideband (UWB) noise waveform with a single channel receiver and a completely digital correlation processor. Velocity resolution using traditional Doppler processing is degraded as signal bandwidth increases, requiring an alternative velocity estimation technique for the AFIT UWB phase-incoherent RNR. One such technique has been developed at AFIT but is limited by its lengthy processing time and high memory… CONTINUE READING
