Abstract: The authors seek to reduce self-generated distortion in the transmitted probe of an intermodulation radar by applying Linearization by Time-Multiplexed Spectrum (LITMUS). In this technical note, an experiment is conducted to select a minimum time-multiplexing rate and an appropriate filter to accomplish LITMUS when transmitting cellular-band frequencies. This research will be followed by a wireless experiment that demonstrates an improvement in the linearity of a short-range intermodulation radar.
