35GHz Radar Sensor

Short description

35GHz sensor and antenna

35GHz radar sensors are much lower cost than 77GHz and 94GHz sensors, and they have adequately narrow beamwidths fro many applications. Because the VCO linearity is very poor, it is necessary to develop a low cost lineariser to provide adequate range resolution.

Leader

Personnel

  • Graham Brooker
  • Javier Martinez

Goals

  • To develop a 35GHz front end that is compatible with the 94GHz front ends that we have developed for other applications.

Start and End Dates

  • Start - August 2006
  • End - onging

Outcomes/Results

  • 35GHz FM module tested with a specially modified 150mm horn lens antenna.

Funding

  • Small grant from AcuMine.
