IEEE Radar Standard P686/D2 (January 2008) defines waveform diversity as 'Adaptivity of the radar waveform to dynamically optimize the radar performance for the particular scenario and tasks. May also exploit adaptivity in other domains, including the antenna radiation pattern (both on transmit and receive), time domain, frequency domain, coding domain, and polarization domain'. As this definition indi cates, the term `waveform diversity' does not refer to a tangible object but to a remote sensing paradigm. The basic elements of the paradigm are measurement diversity, knowledge-aided processing and design, and transmitter adaptivity. The waveform diversity paradigm arose from the insatiable demands for remote sensing performance that are always present in military applications, and the application of wave form diversity has led to many interesting and promising remote sensing concepts. A host of recent activity testifies to the interest and promise of waveform diversity within the radar community.
