### Bandwidth for a binary chirp spread spectrum system

Let's say data rate requirement for some application is 36Kbps. For a binary Chirp spread spectrum system, SF=6 is taken so that M=64. Time * bandwidth = 64. If binary 1 is represented as Upchirp and ...

### Is it possible to observe more area in azimuth than physically traveled in stripmap SAR?

I have been examining stripmap SAR algorithms, mainly Range Migration Algorithm. When I check the textbook examples so far I always saw the data trajectory is larger than scene that is observed. An ...

### Phase of the chirp signal

I'm having a tough time understanding the phase increments which are quadratic in nature in the chirp signal. When I see consecutive samples, what will I see in terms of phase and if I have to measure ...
I am computing the link budget for a communication-radar (CoRadar) system. The formula for maximum distance, in communication, is: $d_{max} = \sqrt{\frac{P_t}{\tau}\frac{G_t G_{r, comm} \lambda^2}{(4\... 0 votes 1 answer 68 views ### finding the audio pulse compression peak in extra-low SNR scenario? I just want to obtain some general ideas for such a scenario: if the environmental noise is extremely strong and the audio signal at the receiver is extremely weak(for instance, low range propagation),... 0 votes 1 answer 668 views ### matched filter of chirp signals In simulating linear frequency modulated (LFM) chirp signals, with the parameters: Pulse width, bandwidth. I find the matched filter response to be this: In particular, there is a increase in the ... 0 votes 0 answers 244 views ### Spectrum of received signal from radar fm-cw I obtained actual data from a researcher, consisting of a matrix composed of several received signals from an up-ramp fm-cw radar. Wouldn't be reasonable to plot the spectrogram of a ramp up and ... 1 vote 1 answer 7k views ### What is meant by LFM (Linear Frequency Modulation) waveform? I m a newbie in radar experiment on which currently i m working, and I m trying to understand the transmitted waveform which is LFM (Linear Frequency Modulation), but unable to interlink between the ... 0 votes 1 answer 847 views ### chirp signal - Frequency spectrum characteristics I am confused with my own intuition of the frequency response of a chirp signal. In this case, the chirp signal is a frequency modulated signal with initial frequency starting at 100 Hz and ending at ... 4 votes 3 answers 1k views ### Matched filter loss due to frequency offset I'm working with a pulsed radar signal which uses linear chirp pulses. I perform pulse compression by applying a matched filter of the simulated chirp waveform and recording the location and power of ... 1 vote 2 answers 236 views ### Decoupling two signals where one is a delayed version of the other I have a signal$y(t)$that consists of the sum of two signals where one is a time delayed version of the other.$ y(t) = x(t) + x(t-t_{d}) x(t)$is known but the time delay$t_d$is not. I ... 5 votes 4 answers 6k views ### Pulse Compression(Chirp) SNR Gain I've created both single tone signal and a LFM chirp signal with same pulse duration and cross correlated both of them with their own(matched filter). Peak points of both results were same as expected ... 0 votes 2 answers 433 views ### how fast can you sweep sinewave I am asking specifically about discrete sound signal, non dithered 16 bit 48000 Hz pcm/wav format.
