In this chapter, the focus is on the use and control of degrees of freedom in the radar illumination pattern and presented examples to highlight the value of properly utilizing degrees of freedom. It has been shown that by coordinating the transmission of Golay complementary waveforms in time (or exploiting waveform agility over time) according to carefully designed biphase sequences, and pulse trains whose ambiguity functions have desired properties can be constructed. It has also been shown that by combining Alamouti coding and Golay complementary property unitary polarization-time waveform matrices that make the full polarization scattering matrix of a target available for detection on a pulse-by-pulse basis can be constructed. Looking to the future, unitary waveform matrices as a new illumination paradigm that enables broad waveform adaptability across time, space, frequency and polarization.
