Abstract
The signal generated by avalanche discharge circuitry that drives optical flash for cameras is ultra wideband and suitable as the excitation waveform for an Impulse Radar when transmitted through an appropriate antenna. In this paper, we experimentally and theoretically show that the Impulse Radar's radiated transmitted EM waves satisfy the admissibility condition of wavelets, i.e. (i) a finite power spectral density psd=<|S(f)|2>< and (ii) zero total area under the undulated wave amplitudes. If the radiated environment is linear (the natural scene), then the received signal also satisfies the admissibility condition.
