The electromagnetic and acoustic wavelets recently introduced by the author are here redefined in a much simplified and generalized form. An application to remote sensing is proposed, resulting in a formulation of radar and sonar as problems in the calculus of variations which reduce to the usual wideband ambiguity function formalisms when the reflectors are assumed to move with a uniform velocity. The new wavelets also lend themselves naturally to multiresolution analysis of electromagnetic and acoustic signals, which could have applications for communication.
