Subsystems - DPCSS

Our Digital Pulse Compression Subsystems (DPCSS) use high speed digital processing, enabling significantly improved overall system performance. They can be used as a replacement of existing SAW-based pulse expanders or compressors to overcome device obsolescence or enhance radar performance.

The DPCSS can be reproduced from one unit to the other with no matching needed, and can also be customised to match linear or non-linear chirps to generate a compressed pulse. The pulse compression filter is customisable (chirp duration, bandwidth, compressed pulse width, chirp slope and more). The expander and compressor modules are provided with FPGA firmware loaded, including waveforms and pulse compression filters.

Applications: retrofit or upgrade of civil air traffic control and military surveillance radars.
