Paper Abstract

Ultrawideband (UWB) radar pulse width at low grazing angles determines whether dominant scattering features of the sea surface, such as whitecaps, are resolved, and therefore has a major influence on the time-varying character of clutter-return signals in individual range cells. Attention is presently given to the design and performance of two clutter-measurement radar systems with variable resolution, as well as to initial sea-clutter data thus obtained at a nominal radar pulse center frequency of 10 GHz.
