Paper Abstract

In this paper, it is firstly pointed out that the raining, as an object in the air, will cause the time spread of radar echo signal. For the pseudo-random code continuous wave (PRC_CW) radar, working with transmitting and receiving continuous EM waves, the echo signal at a specified moment will be the superposition of some spread echo signals in a period of time before this specified moment. A superposition algorithm was proposed to calculate the PRC_CW radar signal. Based on the former previous results on the characteristics of rain clutter, the amplitude fluctuation and the spectrum of the echo signal of the PRC_CW radar are investigated with simulation method.
