Pulse compression for weather radars
Wideband waveform techniques, such as pulse compression, allow for accurate weather radar measurements in a short data acquisition time. However, for extended targets such as precipitation systems, range sidelobes mask and corrupt observations of weak phenomena occurring near areas of strong echoes. Therefore, sidelobe suppression is extremely important in precisely determining the echo scattering region. A simulation procedure has been developed to accurately describe the signal returns from distributed weather targets, with pulse compression waveform coding. This procedure is unique and improves ...
