Abstract : The patent describes apparatus for performing a high-capacity two-dimensional, chirp-z transform, suitable for the signal processing of radar and sonar signals, comprising: an (N sub 2) plurality of two-dimensional partial chirp-Z transform devices; an acoustic surface-wave demultiplexer and chirp multiplier, whose inputs comprise all the outputs of the partial transform devices; an acoustic surface-wave discrete chirp filter, whose input comprises the output of the demultiplexer and chirp multiplier; and an output multiplier whose two inputs comprise the output of the surface-wave demultiplexer and chirp multiplier and the output of the acoustic surface-wave discrete chirp generator, the output of the output multiplier comprising the terms of a one-dimensional chirp-z transform in a linear congruential scan.
