The role of waveform design is central to effective radar resource management for state-of-the art radar systems. The waveform shape employed by any radar system has always been a key factor in determining the performance and application. The design of radar waveform to minimize mean square error (MSE) in estimating the target impulse response is based on power allocation using waterfilling. This paper shows the effect of various power control strategies in the MMSE performance of the waveform design. We find that the truncated power control strategy exhibits a good MMSE performance. The performance improvement results from the fact that with the truncated power control no power is wasted in poor quality modes.
