A technique is proposed for reconstructing wide range profiles using stepped-frequency waveforms (SWFs). The technique is based on reconstructing range sub-profiles.

Abstract

A technique is proposed for reconstructing wide range profiles using stepped-frequency waveforms (SWFs). The technique is based on reconstructing range sub-profiles. With respect to previous methods, the proposed technique can be applied to any kind of SWFs. Moreover, for a given range resolution, long range profiles can be formed without increasing the number of transmitted frequencies. Theoretical results are also derived that provide a correct setting of waveform and processing parameter. Finally, as case studies, the proposed method is applied to three SFWs, namely short-pulse stepped-frequency, linear frequency modulated stepped frequency and phase-coded stepped-frequency waveforms. Simulations prove the effectiveness of the proposed range profile reconstruction.
