Development of linear/non-linear radar system
In this program Vadum will develop a radar system capable of linear and nonlinear detection schemes for electronics detection (E-Det) and a linear Forward Looking Ground Penetrating Radar (FLGPR). The radar designed in this effort will leverage existing Vadum linear and nonlinear radar sensors for detecting electronics associated with RCIEDs and extend this baseline capability with innovation through use of Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) radar techniques. The resulting system will perform new tasks including radar imaging operation for earth surface and shallow sub-surface object detection and beam steering for improved situational awareness of threat locations. When combined with existing E-Det algorithms and low-power waveforms, the proposed radar will significantly advance the state of the art in short range IED detection. The outcome of the Phase 1 program will be a system design based on a theoretical analysis of MIMO radar design, preliminary MIMO measurements, and existing Vadum short-range radars.
