    Abstract :

    The main objective in a pulsed radar system design is to improve range resolution and detection performance of radar. Pulse Compression is a signal processing technique that utilizes the benefits of high range resolution ability of short duration pulse and large range detection ability of long duration pulse. However, the pulse compression filter output in the radar receiver results in higher peak side lobe levels which are not acceptable in many systems when weaker targets are encountered. Thus, higher peak sidelobe levels affect the detection performance of the radar. In this paper, focus is given on which frequency modulated pulse compression technique achieve lower peak side lobe levels.
