Paper Abstract

Conventional radars and communications systems employ waveforms with a set of bandwidth constraints for a given application. Unfortunately, for many applications, such generic waveforms do not employ the optimal use of bandwidth or energy to accomplish the mission of the user due to electromagnetic clutter and noise. We therefore suggest an alternate approach that uses a matching pursuits algorithm in conjunction with two types of detection statistics to design the optimal waveform for the application. We then will demonstrate how this approach can maximize the matched filter detection performance and band-width allocation in a radar and communications example with a high interference environment.
