Abstract
In 2002, we co-authored a report presenting an enhaustive literature search on adaptive transmit radar waveforms. That report listed the list of references, preceded by short accounts of the individual papers. The present report presents a distilled version of that earlier report and updates it by including a few more references that were found subsequent to the previous report. Most important, the report presents a much more detailed account of the distilled list of papers, focusing on two important issues: Target detection in clutter, and Target tracking in clutter, with emphasis on how to select the transmit radar waveform viewed in the context of the ambiguity surface. The report concludes with a proposed strategy based on the Costas array as the framework for radar waveform selection.
