This paper presents a stud of the distortion of a transmitted signal due to Doppler frequency spreading and amplitude modulation as a consequence of the relative velocity between the transmitter and a reflecting surface.
The Doppler effect is a well-known phenomenon associated with the apparent compression, or length of the transmitted signal wave-length, resulting from a positive or negative relative velocity between a transmitter and receiver. In this thesis one of the problems will be the determination of the degree of frequency spreading due to a finite antenna beam width as the transmitter approaches a reflecting surface at a constant velocity. We shall show that the Doppler spreading is a function of antenna beam width.
