Convert range resolution to required bandwidth
Syntax bw = range2bw(r) example bw = range2bw(r,c) Description example returns
the bandwidth needed to distinguish two targets separated by a given
range. Such capability is often referred to as = range2bw( bw ) r range resolution.
The propagation is assumed to be two-way, as in a monostatic radar
the signal propagation speed. = range2bw( bw , r ) c Examples expand all
Assume you have a monostatic radar system that
uses a rectangular waveform. Calculate the required pulse width of
the waveform so that the system can achieve a range resolution of
r = 10;
tau = 1/range2bw(r); Input Arguments expand all
Target range resolution in meters, specified as an array of
Data Types: double
Signal propagation speed, specified as a positive scalar in
meters per second.
Data Types: double Output Arguments expand all
Required bandwidth in hertz, returned as an array of nonnegative
numbers. The dimensions of
bware the same as
those of . r More About expand all
