Abstract : A method for allowing a correlation function to be applied to binary codes of length 3 to length 255. A user may specify the desired length of the binary codes for correlation processing; whether the binary code is to use a phase sidelobe level as the threshold or a sidelobe amplitude as the threshold. The user will also be asked to specify the threshold as well as an in phase coefficient referred to as beta and in out of phase coefficient referred to as a alpha. When the user has specified the parameters for correlation processing of the binary code length selected by the user, the program of the present invention will process the binary codes eliminating allomorphic forms of the codes from correlation and then display the results to the user
