A useful processing tool for time-frequency signals known as the Discrete Chirp Fourier Transform (DCFT) and its implementation using cluster computers for application to RADAR signal analysis. A time-frequency signal is defined as a signal whose spectral distribution changes with time. Chirp signals, as time-frequency signals which are linearly frequency modulated, are widely used in many detection, estimation, and imaging RADAR applications. DCFT implementations for RADAR systems provide
