Abstract: Matched filtering is broadly used in various radar applications and communication fields whose output indicates some range sidelobes which may mask some stronger targets. This problem can be overcome by using mismatched filter after the matched filter which increases the performance that is in terms of peak sidelobe ratio. The proposed algorithm is suitable to obtain superior performance in range resolution and detection range simultaneously. The characteristics of chaotic codes such as auto-correlation and cross-correlation are same as random codes. So the input is considered as binary and ternary chaotic sequence which is undergone matched filtering process which is then undergo mismatched filter for further reduction in the sidelobe levels. The design of mismatched filter is adapted with cuckoo search algorithm that uses Lévy distribution. It is observed that the performance of the ternary sequence is significantly improved at the output and this method is extended to various length of ternary sequences.
