Noncoherent pulse compression (NCPC), suggested recently, uses on-off keying (OOK) signals, obtained from Manchester coding a binary sequence with favorable a-periodic autocorrelation. This paper investigates the use of binary complementary pairs as a basis for NCPC. It shows that a pair of Manchester coded, N-element binary complementary sequences will yield a peak sidelobe (PSL) ratio of 1/(2N).
