Paper Abstract

This paper presents a novel algorithm designed and optimized for a lossless, real-time compression of raw data in pulse radar system. Characteristics of radar data are described together with compression methods exploiting them. Compression ratios of presented algorithm are measured for multiple data sets recorded by different types of radar and in different working conditions. The results are compared with compression ratios of conventional compression algorithms and with the theoretical limits determined by the Shannon entropy.
