  • A Ternary Pulse Compression Code: Design and Application to Radar System 

    Liang, Qilian; Xu, Lei (IEEE Xplore, 2010-03)
    In this paper, we present new developed ternary code – punctured binary sequence-pair, give its definitions and the autocorrelation properties. We also investigate Doppler shift performance of the proposed code. The ...
  • Radar Sensor Network Using A Set of New Ternary Codes: Theory and Application 

    Liang, Qilian; Xu, Lei (IEEE XploreUniversity of Texas at Arlington, Department of Electrical Engineering, 2010-09-23)
    In the radar sensor network (RSN), the interferences among different radar sensors can be effectively reduced when waveforms are properly designed. In this paper, we perform some theoretical studies on coexistence of ...
