Determination of LFM-signal’s instantaneous frequency by phase-differential method of spectral analysis

A method for determining instantaneous frequency of LFM-signal (frequency-modulated harmonic oscillation with a linear time-varying frequency) is proposed. The method is based onphase relationships obtained by means of discrete Fourier transform of the signal’s limited-duration overlapping fragments. Numerical experiments on LFM-signal mathematical modeling and processing are performed to verify the method and determine the boundaries of its applicability.
