Convert range resolution to required bandwidth
The use of
range2bw is not
returns the bandwidth needed to distinguish two targets separated by
a given range. Such capability is often referred to as
range resolution. The propagation is
assumed to be two-way, as in a monostatic radar system.
bw = range2bw(
rngres — Target range resolution
positive scalar | MATLAB® array of positive real values
Target range resolution in meters, specified as a scalar or a MATLAB array of positive real values.
c — Signal propagation speed
speed of light (default) | positive scalar
Signal propagation speed, specified as a positive scalar. Units are in meters per second.
bw — Required bandwidth
positive scalar | MATLAB array of positive real values
Required bandwidth in hertz, returned as a MATLAB array
of positive real values. The dimensions of
the same as those of
This function assumes two-way propagation. For one-way propagation, you can find the required bandwidth by multiplying the output of this function by 2.
