Abstract: Range and velocity estimation of moving targets using conventional steppedfrequencypulse radar may suffer from the range-Doppler coupling and the phasewrapping. To overcome these problems, this paper presents a new radar waveform namedmultiple stepped-frequency pulse trains and proposes a new algorithm. It is shown that byusing multiple stepped-frequency pulse trains and the robust phase unwrapping theorem(RPUT), both of the range-Doppler coupling and the phase wrapping can be robustlyresolved, and accordingly, the range and the velocity of a moving target can be accuratelyestimated.
