Abstract : A radar receiver employing digital signal processing utilizes high-speed input buffers in the form of charge coupled devices that lower the data rate to the analog-to-digital converters so as to reduce their response requirements and, thereby, their cost while still permitting the system to achieve a high degree of range resolution is described.
