From (13) and (14), magnitude gain and phase excursion are respectively
6(b), it is noteworthy that phase excursion occurs across LCL filter and a higher damping leads to a more serious delay.
QPm also directly measures the phase excursion through the sample even when the phase range is greater than one wave cycle.
Phase noise is a random phase excursion of the carrier signal.
The amplitude is kept constant while the signal is passed through intermediate phases at an angular rate, which is determined by the phase excursion involved and a shaping function that may also be defined.
In this paper, these complications are avoided by discussing the SAR fundamentals in terms of the end-to-end convergence angle of the radiation transmitted to and received from the target, since this term determines the SAR focusing action, while rotational ISAR is discussed in terms of its phase excursion.
i], the angle subtended at the radar, and more specifically, the phase excursion along this cross-range axis, are all relatively small.
Subject to an observation time of at least four complete revolutions, any filter matched to the resulting periodic RF phase excursion of [+ or -]4[Pi][r.
When observing a limited angular increment of a continuous rotation, the same analysis applies, but processing to match to the given pattern of phase excursion will then take a different form.
The location-dependent phase excursions, which control the resolution of rotational ISAR, are determined by each target-point's movement about the center of rotation, and are virtually independent of any change of viewing angle from the sensor.
i] is then determined from the relation of the along-range to the across-range phase excursions, unfortunately with the accuracy of the across-range.
