Abstract
The ambiguity function of a kind of chaotic signal radar using Colpitts oscillator is investigated and compared in several aspects. The Colpitts oscillator with specific value of capacitance, inductance and resistance can generate chaotic signal with frequency band from direct current to several gigahertz. The chaotic signal is obtained from simulation and experiment. The auto-ambiguity functions of the chaotic signal show that the chaotic signal of such oscillator is ideal for radar application with both high range and range rate resolution. The cross-ambiguity function also indicates the chaotic signal has excellent capabilities in the electronic countercountermeasures (ECCM).We also present the resolution of range with the spectrum from experiment.
