Paper Abstract

Since the inception of coherent waveforms, it has been realized that the effect of non-uniform motion of a non-point like object can induce structure in the return spectrum of the waveform that can be exploited. The non-uniform Doppler spectrum has useful information that can be found in the spreading of the Doppler spectrum for the motion models: acceleration, jerk, quadric, and exponential slowdown as examples well as a characteristic of periodic motion. We illustrate this with examples relevant to automotive radar, tracking meteors with ambient sources, characterizing moving sources and other relevant examples.
