This chapter has considered the cognitive design of radar waveforms in a spectrally crowded environment where some frequency bands are shared among the radar and other telecommunication systems. Cognition provided by a REM represents the key to an intelligent and dynamic spectrum allocation. In fact, REM information induces dynamic spectral constraints on the radar waveform which is thus the result of a constrained optimization process aimed at improving some radar performance measures such as detection capabilities and ambiguity function properties. Either global and local spectral compatibility requirements have been considered at the design stage. Hence, polynomial computational complexity solution procedures have been developed to synthesize optimized radar waveforms. The performance of the synthesized signals has been analyzed studying the trade-off among the achievable SINR, spectral shape, ACF features, and radiated energy. Remarkably, the local constraint approach is able to ensure a precise control on the interference energy induced on each shared/reserved bandwidth at the price of a slight performance reduction. Possible future research tracks might concern the development of robust frameworks to contrast transmitter impurities and the cognitive fully exploitation of the available multiple dimensions, i.e., spatial, temporal, and polarizations, to improve further system performance.
