Abstract
This technical report presents the results obtained from a MATLAB simulation on adaptive radar transmit waveforms. Using the new MATLAB program, it is possible to design energy-constrained or amplitude-constrained waveforms so as to maximize the signal-to- interference ratio (SIR) for arbitrarily shaped clutter maps (subject to certain integrability constraints). The program provides a flexible mechanism for defining scenario parameters like clutter map shape, number of sub-pulses, amplitude constraints (if any), target SNR, target-to-clutter cross section ratio, initial waveform, etc. Clutter maps are assumed to be defined by a set of parallelograms using a sequence of way-points. A sample scenario definition file, which corresponds to the experiments conducted in DeLong, et al. (1969), is given.
