Ya, I did the simulation and now I have the distance profile where, peak
of the signal showing the target distance. But, still the profile, what I
am getting, is giving distance information in discreat value. I mean, is
it possible to know the exact distance from the digital correlator?

The output from the correlator (defined by z(m) in equation 13) is the
range profile (see figure-2). You would get a similar profile for your
case if you substitute your template waveform in the place for the
chirp signal. The peaks in the range profile corresponds to reflections
from objects.

I read this document. This is the same technique, I am using in the radar
receiver. But still it is not mension about the correlator output. i.e.
what would be the output from the correlator? Also I can't understand the
effect of overflow of the integrator.

Hi,
Thanks for reply. I did the multiplication and integration with different
delays (correlation). So, now I am having diffent signals corresponds to
each delay. Also in this stage of design/simulation, I am not worrying
about two-way travel time. Here I am assuming the target is under the
range. But I did not understand " The peaks in the resulting waveform
correspond to echoes. " Can you explain me it further ? I am removing the
delay, I am getting periodic sine wave with some distortion after
multiplication and integration.

Multiply the transmitted and received waveforms and integrate. The
peaks in the resulting waveform correspond to echoes. Make sure you
scale the time axis to take into account the two-way travel time.

Hi every body,
Now I am working on radar receiver designing. The radar transmits 10MHz
31-bit pn code multiplex with 10kHz sine wave. At the receiver side, It
has
1) the 31-bit pn code and
2) highly noise affected and delayed the transmitted signal
Now I want to design a digital correlator to detect the delay. As soon as
I receive the noisy delayed transimmited signal I am converting it into
digital using a ADC running at 80MHz.
Can anybody suggest what should be next step for correlation? It will be
also helpful to me if anybody can provide refernce web/book to understand
the fundamental of radar correlator.
