Abstract : Generalized EM wavelets: These are defined in a conceptually simple way using retarded Green functions. Models for their emission, reflection, and reception have been proposed. The ambiguity function formalism has been generalized to any number of independent transmitting and receiving platforms in arbitrary motion. When specialized to monostatic radar with a single target in uniform motion, this reduces to the usual wideband ambiguity function formalism, which is ordinary time-scale wavelet analysis. (Reduction to the standard time-frequency ambiguity functions is obtained in the well known way to considering the narrowband limit.) The general case is able to handle multiple targets and multiple reflections as well as general motions, being based directly on a physical model using Green functions.
