Single Pulse Detection

12.1. Single Pulse with Known Parameters

In its simplest form, a radar signal can be represented by a single pulse comprising a sinusoid of known amplitude and phase. Consequently, a retuned signal will also comprise a sinusoid. Under the assumption of completely known signal parameters, a returned pulse from a target has known amplitude and known phase with no random components; and the radar signal processor will attempt to maximize the probability of detection for a given probability of false alarm. In this case, detection is referred to as coherent detection or coherent demodulation. A radar system will declare detection with a certain probability of detection if the received voltage signal envelope exceeds ...
