Radar on a Chip
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
The Army is using unattended ground sensors (UGS) for surveillance and intelligence collection, and while they are effective in many scenarios, the current UGS technologies have capability shortcomings and characteristics that limit their usefulness in many applications. These shortcomings include the lack of radar search capabilities due to cost, weight, power and size constraints. Radar could add additional capabilities to UGS such as improved search and discriminating moving and stationary targets from clutter and noise. This research effort will leverage radio-frequency integrated circuit (RFIC) miniaturization methods, and Senscorp's expertise in Doppler radar sensing to develop low cost, low weight, low power, multifunction radar on a chip. The radar chip will be capable of supporting search, track, identification, and communication.
