An approach for creating a low-cost Chaos Pulsed-Doppler Radar is presented. The objective of this effort is to develop
a practical realization of a Chaotic Radar with performance advantages over other approaches. Many groups have
proposed that Chaotic Waveforms are an effective radar signal generator due to: the relatively low cost of producing
complex wideband waveforms and the difficulty in detecting and spoofing inherently complex modulations. PRA and
Duke University report on the development of a radar design that uses a novel high-speed chaotic waveform generator.
Preliminary experimental results are presented that characterize the performance of a chaotic waveform generator. In
addition, the radar architecture will be proposed, realistic radar design criterion will be set forth, and simulations of a
complete radar will be used to compare the chaotic radar to more traditional radar approaches.© (2012) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE). Downloading of the abstract is permitted for personal use only.
