Novel Waveform for Wireless Communication and Noise Correlation Radar Detection/Imaging Applications

Noise Correlation Radar Detection Algorithm enhances the ability for low probability of intercept radar


The US Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC) Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate has successfully created and demonstrated the advanced pulse-compressed noise (APCN) radar waveform. The APCN waveform enables a Noise Correlation Radar Detection system that has low susceptibility to co-channel interference and a low probability of intercept by outside parties. The robustness of the waveform means it retains fidelity even in a crowded radio frequency environment. The low probability of intercept enables a level of security not currently available to radar.

The same security and fidelity features also make the APCN waveform and NCR techniques attractive for civilian and first responder wireless communication applications. Global communications bandwidths are increasingly crowded as new technologies continually encroach via higher power and larger bandwidth applications. The APCN/NCR technologies could augment existing systems, providing another mode of operation in crowded radio frequency spaces, such as aircraft, police radar, WIMAX, and advanced wireless communications including 4G.
