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 than the radio frequency (RF) deviation of LFM. Positive and negative slope TX/RF locations offer frequency diversity. Time domain and frequency domain signal processings are described. A Ku band direct digital synthesis-based FMCW/FDA radar example based on the cumulative detection scheme is given and compared with an equivalent FMCW/PA radar.

Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave Radar for Range Detection
Kaya, Tevfik; Sahin, Enes Burak; Nesimoglu, Tayfun (2018-11-02)
In this paper, a Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave Radar is built using radio frequency techniques. Radar can measure the nearest object's range from 2 to 30 meters with 1-meter range resolution. The design process was carried out by using computer-aided design techniques, and mathematical tools. The hardware prototype was built and measurements were carried out confirming successful operation of the range detection radar.
Examination of Target RCS Characteristics in FDA Radars
Cetintepe, Cagri; Demir, Şimşek (2014-07-11)
This paper reports on the preliminary analysis of frequency diverse array (FDA) radars for simple target geometries. The radar system employs an FDA and a isotropic element as the transmitter and receiver antennas, respectively, and illuminates a target consisting of an arbitrary arrangement of ideal point scatterers. After establishing a signal model for the voltage waveform received by this radar system, the study then considers particular target arrangements and compares the average received power to tha...
Comparison of the intercarrier interference cancellation methods in OFDM systems
Etiler, Burkay; Tuncer, Temel Engin; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In OFDM systems carrier frequency offset is observed due to Doppler shift and transmitter-receiver frequency mismatches. This offset induces ICI (Intercarrier Interference). In this thesis, repeated data methods and pilot-aided carrier frequency offset(CFO) estimation methods and windowing techniques are used to mitigate the frequency offset problem and a performance comparison is made between these ICI cancellation techniques. Repeated data methods use only half of the bandwidth for information transmissio...
Out-of-band radiation and CFO immunity of potential 5G multicarrier modulation schemes
Üçüncü, Ali Bulut; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2015)
In this study, generalized frequency division multiplexing (GFDM) and windowed cyclic prefix circular offset quadrature amplitude modulation (WCP-COQAM), which are candidate physical layer modulation schemes for the 5G systems, are compared to orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) in terms of out-of-band (OOB) radiation levels and carrier frequency offset (CFO) immunity. GFDM and WCP- COQAM are shown to be superior to OFDM with respect to OOB emissions in some studies in literature. However, we c...
Distance Measurement by Phase Tracking
Dogan, Ozan; Demir, Ibrahim; Aydin, Umut (2017-05-18)
In this work, multi frequency continuous wave radar phase unwrapping and the target tracking algorithm are combined. In order to unwrap the wrapped measurement, the unwrapped range measurement or the predicted range is utilized. Methods are assessed with the simulations and field tests. Final tracked range accuracy is shown to be increased without an additional phase unwrapping procedure.
