The problem of coupling between probability of target blanking (P-TB) and probability of blanking (P-B) in Maisel sidelobe blanker (SLB) is addressed and a complementary auxiliary antenna pattern is proposed for phased array radar systems. The numerical results indicate that the complementary pattern provides an improvement on P-TB and P-B especially for the cases where antennas have poor mainlobe-to-sidelobe ratio.


Prospects of FMCW-based frequency diverse array radar
Cetiner, Ramazan; Cetintepe, Cagri; Demir, Şimşek; Hizal, Altunkan (2019-11-01)
The linear frequency modulated (LFM) frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW)-based frequency diverse array (FDA) radar concept is investigated in detail. The radar operates as a linear pulsed FMCW/FDA in the transmission (TX) mode while it operates as a pulsed FMCW/phased array (PA) in the receiving mode. The issues such as low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of FDA, the time-angle scanning and time-range ambiguities are studied. It is shown that the local instantaneous frequency bandwidth is much smaller th...
Monte Carlo analysis of the effects of the material and shape uncertainties on radar cross section by the finite difference time domain method
Kazar, Ali Kemal; Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa; Özgün, Özlem; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2013)
The aim of this research is to analyze the variations in Radar Cross Section (RCS) values of dielectric and conducting objects due to material and shape uncertainties by employing the Finite Difference Time Domain Method and the Monte Carlo approach in electromagnetic scattering problems. MATLAB codes are developed and validated to solve the electromagnetic scattering problem involving two and three dimensional arbitrarily-shaped objects. Basic principles of FDTD and its implementation in MATLAB are describ...
Optimization of vibration characteristics of a radar antenna structure
Baran, İsmet; Özgen, Gökhan Osman; Ciğeroğlu, Ender; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2011)
Radar antenna structures especially array antennas which are integrated onto structures of aerial vehicles are subject to dynamic structural and aerodynamic loads. Due to occurrences of these dynamic loads there will be certain dynamic deformations which affect the antenna’s performance in an adverse manner. The influence of deformations and vibrations are important on array antenna structures, since they cause a change in orientation of elements of the phased array antenna which affects the gain of the ant...
Range and Angle Measurement in a Linear Pulsed Frequency Diverse Array Radar
Cetiner, Ramazan; Demir, Şimşek; Hizal, Altunkan (2017-05-12)
The range-angle coupling in Frequency Diverse Array (FDA) radar is uniquely solved. The array operates as a linear pulsed FDA in the transmission (TX) mode while it operates as a pulsed phased array (PA) in the receiving (RX) mode. The duration of FDA TX pulse is chosen as minimum. A novel radar concept is proposed. It is shown that FDA waveform can be further compressed by matched filtering (MF).
A Space-Time Coded Mills Cross MIMO Architecture to Improve DOA Estimation and Its Performance Evaluation by Field Experiments
Ungan, Cahit Ugur; Candan, Çağatay; Çiloğlu, Tolga (2020-06-01)
Conventional Mills Cross architecture suffers from poor direction-of-arrival angle estimation accuracy in the dimension that the transmitter is aligned. To improve the estimation accuracy, a space-time coded, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) direction finding method, with complementary codes is presented. The performance of the suggested MIMO Mills Cross architecture has been evaluated by underwater field experiments. Field experiments confirm the feasibility of the proposed approach and illustrate the...
