Paper Abstract

Millimeter-wave radar technology in a frequency band of 96 GHz is promising to detect small objects with a high range resolution because of its short wavelength and broadness of available bandwidths of 8 GHz. However, transmission distance in the millimeter-wave bands is limited by high atmospheric attenuation. Radio over fiber (RoF) technology should be implemented to transport these millimeter-wave signals to remote radar heads via an optical fiber network. In the study, we discuss the RoF network for distributed radar systems in the millimeter-wave and submillimeter-wave bands.
