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.

Direction finding with a circularly rotated antenna
Koc, AT; Sen, E; Tanik, Y (2000-06-09)
In this work, a new algorithm for multiple emitter direction finding by using a single antenna moving along a circular trajectory is proposed. The problem is formulated by taking the Doppler frequency shift, caused by the movement of the antenna. into account, and by assuming that the information, hidden in the incoming signals, does not change in the observation duration. The proposed direction finding algorithm is, therefore, based on single snapshot processing and also on the linear prediction method dev...
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...
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.
Performance Comparison of Target Tracking Algortihms in Underwater Environment
Ege, Emre; Saranlı, Afşar (2008-04-22)
Target tracking is one the most fundamental elements of a radar system. The aim of target tracking is the reliable estimation of a target's true state based on a time history of noisy sensor observations. In real life, the sensor data may include substantial noise. This noise can render the raw sensor data unsuitable to be used directly. Instead, we must filter the noise, preferably in an optimal manner. For land, air and surface marine vehicles, very successful filtering methods are developed. However, bec...
Multi-dimensional hough transform based on unscented transform as a method of track-before-detect /
Şahin, Gözde; Demirekler, Mübeccel; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
Track-Before-Detect (TBD) is the problem where target state estimation and detection occur simultaneously, and is a suitable method for the detection of low-SNR targets in unthresholded sensor data. In this thesis, a new Multi-Dimensional Hough Transform (MHT) technique based on Unscented Transform is proposed for the detection of dim targets in radar data. MHT is a TBD method that fuses Hough Transform results obtained on (x-t), (y-t) and (x-y) domains in order to detect a constant velocity target. The pro...
