Ultra High Resolution Radar

Short Description

This project focuses on the development of a 94GHz FMCW radar with a closed loop linearised 4GHz chirp bandwidth resulting in a range resolution of better than 10cm. It is coupled to a Waveband spinning-grating antenna to generate high resolution reflectivity images.
