Doppler resilience, reed-müller codes and complementary waveforms


Journal Article

While the use of complementary waveforms has been considered as a technique for providing essentially perfect range sidelobe performance in radar systems, its lack of resilience to Doppler is often cited as a reason not to deploy it. This work describes and examines techniques both for providing Doppler resilience as well as tailoring Doppler performance to specific aims. The Doppler performance can be varied by suitably changing the order of transmission of multiple sets of complementary waveforms. We propose a method which improves Doppler performance significantly in specific Doppler ranges by arranging the transmission of multiple copies of complementary waveforms according to a suitable choice from the first order Reed-Müller codes. We provide both a theoretical analysis and computer simulations of the Doppler response of waveform sequences constructed in this way. © 2007 IEEE.
