PROJECT TITLE :
Fast adaptive pulse compression based on matched filter outputs
An adaptive pulse compression (APC) algorithm is developed, based mostly on the concept of minimum mean sq. error (MMSE), that utilizes matched filter (MF) output as its input and is termed Matched-Filter-Reiterative-MMSE (MF-RMMSE). MF-RMMSE permits the utilization of a smaller processing window than traditional reiterative-MMSE (RMMSE) but achieves identical performance at side-lobe suppression, and therefore the computational load is reduced. MF-RMMSE additionally facilitates the implementation of APC to current radar sensors, since the present MF implementations will be untouched. The derivation of MF-RMMSE is provided intimately, and its performance is validated through both simulations and actual airborne radar measurements for "mixed-target" observations, that includes both onerous targets and distributed weather targets.
