The radar signal simulation based on the analysis of Pulse-Doppler radar for digital signal processing implementation in the Matlab environment




simulation, radar signal, radar, noise, clutter


Introduction. The complexity of modern radar (RLS) due to their versatility and the need to adapt to the interference situation is constantly changed. The models to test the basic ideas to be implemented in the radar are required. It is important to consider the main stages of the simulation of the radar signal based on the analysis of radar operation.
Problem statement. The creation of a universal analytical model to build a radar signal in Matlab is considered.
Theoretical results. Stages and results of the radar signal simulation are presented and based on the analysis of pulse – Doppler radar. Basic analytical relations ofthe task are given. Features of simulation when signals of additive fluctuation noise and clutter together with the echo target signals arrive are considered.
Conclusion. As a result of analysis of radar interference conditions on the basis of existing relations an optimum variant model of radar signal in Matlab environment is reached. This is the basis for further evaluation of the digital processing effectiveness of the radar signal to background noise and interference (clutter), namely to determine the distance to targets and target’s speeds. . The main advantages of the Mellin transform using for recognizing signals at different scales are presented is conclusions.
