Abstract
Previously, in a sequence of papers, there has been considerable analysis of the effects of waveforms on tracking; but these have always assumed that measurements both of range and of range-rate are deliverable. Many radar systems use what may be termed “conventional” processing, in which measurements only of range are available, and for which range-rate information must be inferred. Thus, in this paper, results are extended to that case. As an example result, we show that to allow for the bias to the observed range measurement via a linear function of the range-rate results in a considerable loss versus what would be possible with more accurate accounting.
