Chapter 11 introduces a family of multicarrier, frequency and phase-modulated pulse compression waveforms named MCPC (MultiCarrier Phase Coded). Every multicarrier phase coded pulse consists of N sequences (phase codes) transmitted simultaneously on N carriers. Each sequence contains M phase modulated bits (chips). The frequency difference between two adjacent carriers is set equal to the inverse of the bit duration yielding orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM).
The design principles of low peak to mean envelope power ratio multicarrier pulse, pulse train and continuous wave signals having preferable frequency spectra and ambiguity function are described. The design is based on the special properties of chirplike codes, complementary sets and mutually orthogonal complementary sets, together with numerical optimization methods used for finalizing the design.
