Abstract : The radar system transmits a coded continuous wave signal to a target and detects the return signal for processing. Taped delay lines having a predetermined delay between all adjacent taps are connected to a reference signal which is an encoded signal. A power splitter is connected to the return radar signal. A plurality of mixers connect sequentially different ones of the taps on the delay line to the power splitters outputs. A detector is used to show which output of the mixers is providing a signal.
