Abstract

A technique is described whereby an algorithm obtains that portion of an echo g(t) that is responsible for a particular peak in the cross- ambiguity surface of itself and a reference signal f(t), as used in Range-Doppler radar applications. Consider the windowed function described in the preceding article K(x,y) = Af,g(x,y)W(x,y) where the window W(x,y) isolates a peak of interest in the ambiguity function Af,g(x,y). It is desirable to obtain fixed f(t) min { K-A(fRg*) 2: g e2L (R)} This algorithm reduces to determine where and K~1 denotes the Fourier transform of K in the first variable. Because f is fixed by Cauchy-Schwartz inequality, the maximum is achieved by gopt = K~f.
