Abstract
The primary objective of the proposed research is to develop proof of concept of a software programmable X-Band radar system using low cost antenna array technology with digital beamforming architecture based on multiple receiver channels. The performance objectives will aim at a minimum of 400 MHz instantaneous bandwidth and a minimum instantaneous dynamic range of 52 dB. The objective of the tunable bandwidth will be at the 1 GHz level. The receiver architecture will be based on a multi-channel design capable of being combined with antenna arrays and software-defined algorithms for adaptive beamforming.
