-ntroduction
. /!0ective' To develop t"e tools t"at will process t"e raw, uncompressed data from *etR&D . User re1uirements'
To allow t"e user to view t"e data To apply pulse compression to t"e data

T"e Data Diewer


. ?as used to plot t"e data !efore or after pulse compression . Gives a 64D plot of t"e w"ole data set using a colour sc"eme . &llows a user selected pulse from t"e data set to !e viewed . Gives user t"e option to save t"e plot as a png file

Pulse Compression
. Re1uired t"e use of matc"ed filtering . Synt"etic c"irp was defined for t"e reference pulse . ?as implemented in t"e fre1uency domain . lac2man window was incorporated

Conclusion
. T"e *etR&D Processor "as s"own its capa!ility of viewing and processing a typical *etR&D data set . -t can "ave more functions !uilt into it . -mproved range resolution and S*R after matc"ed filtering
