Abstract

A joint radar/communication system is considered, where the radar adaptively designs the transmitted waveform such that the interference caused to the cellular systems is strictly controlled. In this paper, different Mutual Information based criteria for radar waveform optimization are proposed and the corresponding waveform optimization problems are formulated and solved analytically. Radar performance trade-offs for the considered Mutual Information based criteria are presented and, using simulation results, it is shown that a larger maximized Mutual Information does not guarantee an optimal detection performance. It is also emphasized the importance of exploiting the communication signals scattered off the target for the detection task when dealing with weak radar returns.
