Paper Abstract

Georgia Tech has developed a new state-of-the-art 95 GHz instrumentation radar designated HIRES-95. It is designed specifically for full polarization scattering matrix measurements and characterization applications. The transmission waveform, the system polarization, and the range and angular resolutions are selectable from a variety of operational modes. For example, the system can operate with CW, FM-CW or pulsed waveforms including coherent pulse-to-pulse frequency agility; it can operate in either a coherent or a noncoherent mode; the system is dual polarized and has pulse-to-pulse (or transmission to transmission) polarization agility; it can operate with either linear polarization or circular polarization; both the angular and range resolutions are continuously selectable to a maximum resolution of approximately one foot in each dimension.
