Dual-Use Multicarrier Waveform for Radar Detection and Communication
The use of multicarrier waveforms, such as orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) as used in radio communication, is gaining interest within the radar community. This paper considers the optimization of radar performance within the structure imposed by a coded OFDM format required to achieve an acceptable communication link. The dual goal of achieving both satisfactory radar and communication performance raises challenges that can be substantively addressed by combining phase coding and modulation techniques to provide the temporal and spectral structure necessary to implement simultaneous radar and communication operations.
