Abstract

One way of improving the range resolution of microwave imaging systems is to synthesize the ultra wideband signal from a regular set of narrowband modulated pulses. A train of linear frequency modulated pulses (chirps) with equal carrier frequency steps between pulses is studied here. The frequency step is chosen to be relatively small in comparison with the chirp bandwidth to enable deep side lobes suppression by using bell-shaped window functions. As shown in the paper, the weighted chirp signal is effectively being applied to high-resolution imaging.
