This paper analyses the autocorrelation function of return waveforms in high precision radar altimeters employing chirp-pulse transmit signal under the condition of near-nadir deviations of the antenna boresight axis. It is shown that in case of ultra wideband transmit signals providing very high time resolution the correlation function can be approximated by a product of two separate functions of time.
