The proliferation of mobile devices has resulted in the frequencies of operation of communication systems to coincide with those of the radar systems, causing mutual interference. To minimize the level of interference, a novel approach is to combine both systems in a single platform. This presentation considers a joint radar and communication system, where the radar transmitter and receiver as well as the communication transmitter are the same device while the communication receiver is at some distance. The same waveform is used for both systems and it is optimized such that it maximizes the performance of both systems.
