Paper Abstract

Experimental results from recent field testing with the noise correlation radar (NCR) are presented as a proof of concept. In order to understand the effectiveness of the NCR, a predetermined set of measures is established. We discuss the three experimental configurations used in evaluating the system’s range resolution/error, robustness to interference, and secure radio frequency (RF) emission. We show that the advanced pulse compression noise (APCN) radar waveform has low range measurement error, is robust to interference, and is spectrally nondeterministic. In addition, we determine that an improvement in range resolution due to phase modulation is achieved as a function of the random code length rather than the compressed pulse length.
