Abstract : A theoretical analysis has been made to determine the response of a pulse compression network to a single frequency pulse of arbitrary length. The purpose of this analysis was to determine if minimum detectable signal measurements made on a pulse compression receiver were meaningful when done with a single frequency test pulse. It has been shown that little amplitude degradation occurs through the pulse compression network if the single frequency test pulse is longer than the product of the recompressed pulse length and the square root of the compression ratio.
