Paper Abstract

The need for analysis of time-varying signals has led to the formulation of a class of joint time-frequency distributions (TFDs). One of these TFDs, the Wigner-Ville distribution (WVD), has useful properties which can be applied to radar imaging. This paper first discusses the radar equation in terms of the time-frequency representation of the signal received from a radar system. It then presents a method of tomographic reconstruction for time-frequency images to estimate the scattering function of the aircraft. An optical archi-tecture is then discussed for the real-time implementation of the analysis method based on the WVD.
