Paper Abstract

Spurious energy in received radar data is unanticipated and undesired signal relevant to radar target signatures, usually a consequence of nonideal component and circuit behavior, perhaps due to I/Q imbalance, nonlinear component behavior, additive interference (e.g. cross-talk, etc.), or other sources. The manifestation of the spurious energy in a range-Doppler map or image can often be influenced by appropriate pulse-to-pulse phase modulation. Comparing multiple images having been processed with the same data but different signal paths and modulations allows identifying undesired spurs and then cropping or apodizing them.
