Echolocating bats show a unique ability to detect, resolve and discriminate targets. The Spectrogram Correlation and Transformation (SCAT) receiver is a model of the Eptesicus fuscus auditory system that presents key signal processing differences compared to radar which may offer useful lessons for improvement. A baseband version of the SCAT is used to investigate advantages and disadvantages of bat-like signal processing against the task of target resolution. The baseband receiver is applied to RF experimental data and results show higher range resolution than the reciprocal of the transmitted bandwidth can be achieved for two closely spaced scatterers.
