Abstract

Developed initially for military applications, radar technology is rapidly spreading to areas as diverse as natural resource monitoring, civil infrastructure assessment, and homeland security. Waveform design is a critical component to extract maximum information about the targets or features being probed. Waveforms derived from noiselets, one of the family functions of wavelets, can be advantageous in certain applications owing to their random and uncorrelated properties. In this work, radio frequency (RF) noiselet waveforms are introduced and their performance related to detection of arbitrary target interfaces using the cross-correlation method, a form of matched filtering, is assessed. The application of the RF noiselet waveform for nondestructive testing (NDT) of the multilayered dielectric structures is discussed. The application of wideband noiselet waveforms for multiresolution analysis (MRA) is demonstrated.
