1. Franzini, Cecelia R. Waveform Design for Ground-Penetrating Radar.

Degree: MS, 2015, Worcester Polytechnic Institute

A ground-penetrating radar is being designed to find subterranean structures. This is difficult to do because of varying mediums. Having more bandwidth can help mitigate this problem. Because the frequency spectrum is so cluttered, one method to do this is to use non-contiguous orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (NC-OFDM) to occupy several free areas of the spectrum. An NC-OFDM waveform was designed and optimized with respect to peak-to-average-power ratio, orthogonality, spectral leakage and autocorrelation sidelobes. Techniques such as the use of a Zadoff-Chu sequence and a gap filling algorithm were implemented to do this. The waveform was tested in simulation to show that while computationally expensive, this may be a viable waveform for ground-penetrating radar. Advisors/Committee Members: Alexander M. Wyglinski, Advisor, Thomas Gannon, Committee Member, Srikanth Pagadarai, Committee Member, Kevin Cuomo.
