Waveform diversity for adaptive radar-an expert system approach

Donald D. Weiner, Andrew L. Drozd, Pramod K. Varshney

Research output: Chapter in Book/Entry/PoemChapter


The focus of this chapter is on the design of waveforms for efficient spatial and temporal adaptivity including the focusing of the transmitted energy on a physically-small target, so that it will be possible to synthesize waveforms in the space-time continuum for both monostatic and bistatic applications and so that they can be mission adaptive. The objective is to develop spatially and temporally adaptive sensor technology for application to air, space, and ground systems operating in isolation or in concert with other sensor systems, emphasizing monostatic and bistatic scenarios. This can be achieved with the application of expert system technologies to facilitate the automatic selection of the waveforms in real time and near real time applications based on predefined rules.
