Paper Abstract

It is often advantageous to modify, or warp, radar waveforms, particularly with respect to group-delay and spectral dilation. These warping adjustments may facilitate real-time motion compensation of waveforms in radar systems, especially when those waveforms are generated by a digital parametric waveform generator. Relevant waveforms to this paper include Frequency Modulated (FM) waveforms, such as the Linear-FM (LFM) chirp, Non-Linear FM (NLFM) chirp, and other general FM waveforms. We present techniques for making fine adjustments to dynamically warp general FM waveforms.
