The resolution of a pulse based radar system is restricted by the pulse width. Overlapping echoes in time domain of adjacent objects make a wave front evaluation of B-scans difficult. In this paper, a new algorithm for the wave front detection is proposed. Based on a reference impulse response of a large metal plate, the algorithm is able to determine the number of targets. Furthermore, two narrow adjacent spheres were detected as two different objects although the pulses of the two targets were overlapping. In the resulting radar image their shapes could be reconstructed.
