Paper Abstract

In this paper, a microwave photonic dual band radar based on a photonic-assisted de-chirp processing receiver is proposed. The dual band operation is realized independently and simultaneously with a single set of hardware. At a transmitter end, two linear frequency-modulated signals separately located in C-band and Ku-band are transmitted, echoes are collected and sent to a receiver to implement photonic-assisted de-chirp processing. At the receiver end, a main modulator with a special structure, which consists of four parallel sub-modulators, is employed. The echoes and reference signals of C-band and Ku-band are applied to two pairs of sub-modulators of the main modulator, which are biased at the peak points for C-band and biased at the null points for Ku-band. In this case, the intermediate frequency signals of C-band and Ku-band produced by de-chirp processing locate at two different frequencies. Thus operation in different bands based on a unified system is achieved. An experiment operating in C-band and Ku-band with a bandwidth of 700 MHz and 3600 MHz is conducted. The results verify the concept of the dual band radar and show the potential of photonic technology to improve the performance of modern radar system.
