Treść
This paper presents the design, implementation, and validation tests of a C-band analog-front-end (AFE) for the frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radar. The system was designed to be used in various radar applications, including short rage mode, synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and moving target indication (MTI) mode. The AFE presented here was based on commercial off-the-shelf radio frequency components, and designed as a homodyne system, so the final applications were based on the FMCW radar. Validation tests and experiments were carried out in the laboratory and in open-air environments. The authors present tests of the AFE, including MTI and SAR trials, conducted using a ground moving platform (a car) and an airborne platform (a small aircraft). The results are discussed with the prospect of future work and further improvements in mind.
