Abstract

Modern radar systems, such as co-located or distributed MIMO radar, often operate in very hostile environments. In such a scenario the selection of the best waveform to be used is an important aspect in order to maximize the performance. In this paper we introduce the use of the Fractional Fourier Transform as a tool to generate libraries of phase coded waveforms. The analysis of the performance of the generated libraries demonstrates how the novel approach can introduce benefits for specific applications with a relatively simple effort and with limited or no extra resource requirement.
