Abstract
AN INNOVATIVE RF EM MODULATION RADAR SENSOR IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL PROVIDE A RICH, MULTI-SPECTRAL RESPONSE FROM RELOCATABLE STRATEGIC TARGETS. THIS NOVEL RF SYSTEM HAS THE FOLLOWING MAJOR ADVANTAGES OVER COMPETING RADAR SYSTEMS. A. IN ADDITION TO PROVIDIG THE CONVENTIONAL RADAR RETURN, A SECONDARY PHASE MODULATION IS INTRODUCED WHICH PROVIDES A UNIQUE RESPONSE CAPABLE OF FURTHER TARGET CHARACTERIZATION. B. A SIGNIFICANT PENETRATION INTO CAMAFLOUGE MATERIALS AND NON-METALIC STRUCTURES ARE REALIZED, PROVIDING AN ADDITIONAL DIMENSION TO THE RECOGNITION AND IDENTIFICATION OF THE TARGET.
