Abstract

We develop and present a novel minimum estimation error variance waveform design method. The method optimizes the spectral shape of a unimodular radar waveform such that the performance of a joint radar-communications system that shares spectrum is maximized. We also develop the novel spectral water-filling successive interference cancelation data rate, which employs the continuous spectral water-filling algorithm to obtain the optimal communications power spectrum. We perform a numerical study to compare the performance of the new technique with the previously derived spectral mask shaping method. The global estimation rate and the data rate capture the radar and the communications performance, respectively.
