Paper Abstract

ultra wide band (UWB) time domain radar signals and presents experimental measurements used to illustrate the advantages and disadvantages of such methods. The techniques are developed in three stages; early time processing based on time domain inverse scattering identities for the design of matched filter detectors, radar cross section modelling using finite difference time domain techniques for investigating the effects of change of target geometry and incident pulse shape and finally, the use of late time information on target resonance and damping for the identification of important target features. Two targets are considered in detail, backscatter from a metallic sphere and scattering from a rectangular box with variable aperture sizes.
