The modern radar signals are in a wide frequency space. The receiving bandwidth of the radar reconnaissance receiver should be wide enough to intercept the modern radar signals. The Nyquist folding receiver (NYFR) is a novel wideband receiving architecture and it has a high intercept probability. Chirp signals are widely used in modern radar system. Because of the wideband receiving ability, the NYFR will receive the concurrent multiple chirp signals. In this letter, we propose a novel parameter estimation algorithm for the multiple chirp signals intercepted by single channel NYFR. Compared with the composite NYFR, the proposed method can save receiving resources. In addition, the proposed approach can estimate the parameters of the chirp signals even the NYFR outputs are under frequency aliasing circumstance. Simulation results show the efficacy of the proposed method.
