Abstract

A method of signal synthesis is presented. After theoretical introduction an algorithm of frequency modulated (FM) signal synthesis is presented. Simulation results made in Matlab are presented in the last chapter. Keywords: NLFM, signal synthesis, autocorrelation function. 1 Introduction This paper presents the problem of the synthesis of signals modulated in frequency with an autocorrelation function that implements an optimal approximation to a given autocorrelation function. The output signal of the matched filter is proportional to the autocorrelation function of the expected signal. Because of that one would want to use a signal whose autocorrelation function
