A method and system for signal processing, especially useful as a signal repeater, i.e. for simulating the characteristic echo signature of a preselected target. The system has a digital radio frequency memory (DRFM) and associated circuitry, including digital tapped delay lines, and a modulator in each delay line to impose both amplitude and frequency modulation in each line. Use of digital semiconductor technology increases the bandwidth and sensitivity of such a repeater over prior analog based systems, reduces the noise of the repeated signal, reduces size and cost of such a system, and permits real time alteration of operating parameters, permitting rapid and adaptive shifting among different kinds of targets to be simulated. Preferably the associated circuitry is unitary with, and part of, the DRFM.

Myers, Glen A.; Rudolph, Francis Albert (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1968-08); NPS-52MV8081AThe report considers an asynchronous (non-coherent) method of demodulating a carrier that is phase-reversal modulated by a two-level waveform. The comparatively simple demodulation technique treated relies on the conversion ...
