Ultrawideband (UWB) Impulse Radar

Impulse radar is valuable for small radar applications where range Doppler coupling is a problem (e.g., when using FMCW to range a fast moving target, if the target is fast enough its Doppler will cause a shift in the measured target position away from its actual position) such as in automotive radar. UWB radar is also useful when low spectral power density is desired for low probability of detection military applications or to comply with UWB spread spectrum regulations. Specific applications include but are not limited to automotive, ground penetrating, through-wall, laboratory radar systems, and longer range high power proof-of-concept systems [1].

Impulse radar is simply conventional radar implemented ...
