Enhanced SIMO Radar System Based on Time-Frequency Correlation for Target Localization Applications
MetadataShow full item record
This study developed a novel S-band radar system for planar location applications. High-resolution range imaging and target angle estimation were achieved by using a stepped frequency continuous wave (SFCW) signal and single input multiple output (SIMO) architecture with a linear sparse array layout, respectively. An improved time-frequency method was utilized to link the independent range profile and angle spectrum results to obtain the plane positions of the targets. The radar hardware was composed of the antenna array with one transmit element and five receive elements, an RF transceiver, and a signal processing component. Under the proposed waveform parameters and signal processing scheme, a 16-ms process cycle, 0.3-m ranging error, and 0.4° angle estimation error for target positioning were achieved in field tests. These results demonstrate the effectiveness and advantages of the proposed radar system.
