Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Costas signal, which is able to provide good time and frequency resolution simultaneously, is widely adopted in modern radar systems, especially for the radar with low interception performance. However, because of the widely acknowledged superb ambiguity properties, the pulse compression for Costas signal requires multi-velocity-channel processing, and hence, the computational load is increased accordingly. In this paper, based on the characteristics of General Purpose Graphics Processing Unit (GPGPU), a new pulse compression scheme for Costas signal is proposed and validated. According to the experiment, this processing scheme will provide a good reference for the design of radar signal processors with high computing performance.
