Minimal Compression of a Radio-Frequency Pulse

  title={Minimal Compression of a Radio-Frequency Pulse},
  author={Wieslaw Szajnowski},
Quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) and a complementary representation of a causal waveform have been used to develop a sidelobe-free pulse-compression technique. Envelopes of radio-frequency (RF) pulses under study include both unimodal (Laplacian, Gaussian, rectangular) and bimodal (Hermite-Gaussian) shapes. Although the achievable compression gain is small (∼ 2), the generation and phase-invariant correlation processing of such created compressible pulses can be accomplished with the use… 


Pulse shaping with a phase-shifted fiber Bragg grating for antisymmetric pulse generation
Pulses of arbitrary temporal shape can be generated by spectrally filtering a short pulse. Frequency selective reflectors, such as fiber Bragg gratings, can be designed to obtain the desired pulse
Detection of signals in noise
In underwater sonar systems, external acoustic noise is generated by waves and wind on the water surface, by biological agents (fish, prawns, etc.), and by man-made sources such as engine noise.
