Paper Abstract

We describe a flexible hardware system of the Doppler radar which is designed to verify various baseband array signal processing algorithms. In this work we design the Doppler radar system simulator for baseband signal processing in laboratory level. Based on this baseband signal processor, a PN-code pulse doppler radar simulator is developed. More specifically, this simulator consists of an echo signal generation part and a signal processing part. For the echo signal generation part, we use active array structure with 4 elements, and adopt baker coded PCM signal in transmission and reception for digital pulse compression. In the signal processing part, we first transform RF radar pulse to the baseband signal because we use the basebands algorithms using IF sampling. Various digital beamforming algorithms can be adopted as a baseband algorithm in our simulator. We mainly use Multiple Sidelobe Canceller (MSC) with main array antenna elements and auxiliary antenna elements as beamforming and sidelobe canceller algorithm. For Doppler filtering algorithms, we use the FFT. A control set is necessary to control overall system and to manage the timing schedule for the operation.
