Design of Micro-Wideband Radar Experiment System


Article Preview

This paper presents a micro-wideband radar experimental system design. Wideband signal source and high-speed data sampling and processing module of the system is discussed in detail. Designed radar experimental system weighs 4.5Kg, with signal bandwidth of 1GHz and effective distance of 5km. The system can realize wideband radar echo real-time sampling and processing functions. On-board Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imaging experiment is done. The imaging resolution of the system is 0.3m, this result is satisfactory. It shows that the system can meet the requirements of a unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) platform. The design and test results are significant to miniaturization of wideband radar system.
