  • Radar Fundamentals

    This chapter presents a comprehensive treatment to the radar fundamentals covering a wide cross‐section of topics including basic radar functions, related performance parameters, radar range equation, radar waveforms, radar transmitters, receivers and displays, radar antennas and types of radar. Radars can be classified on the basis of: operational frequency band, transmit wave shape and spectrum, pulse repetition frequency (PRF) class and intended mission and mode. The target location is expressed in terms of its range, azimuth angle and elevation angle. Ranging is based on the principle of measuring the time delay between the transmission of a pulse of electromagnetic energy by the radar and the detection of the received echo. Range ambiguity occurs when multiple target positions produce the same reported information and the radar is unable to distinguish between the two in terms of range. Angular position is determined by measuring angular coordinates; that is, azimuth and elevation angles.

  • Laser and Radar Based Robotic Perception

    A crucial component of perception is the understanding of information which has passed through a sensor's detection process. In the world of autonomous robotics this takes the form of sensor understanding and modelling, feature detection, predicting measurements/observations, feature matching and sensor data representation. Laser and Radar Based Robotic Perception presents a review of autonomous robotic perception, exploring recent work from the autonomous robotics and tracking communities in general as well as from the authors' own experiences. Throughout the text, experiments and results are derived from the authors' experiences with laser and radar based sensors. The concepts used in the experiments, and conclusions drawn from them, are then compared with state of the art perception methods in a review type fashion. Laser and Radar Based Robotic Perception also reviews and presents methods which cope probabilistically with missed detections (the possibility of a sensor not detec ing an object of interest), object spatial uncertainty (in which detected objects are given uncertain range and/or bearing values due to sensor noise) and false alarms (the possibility of a sensor reporting a detection, due to noise, when in fact nothing (or nothing of interest) is present). Environment measurement models based on these phenomena are therefore analysed. A further concept, often over-looked in the robotic, but apparent in the tracking literature, is that of estimating the correct number of features in an environment. Recent work which advocates the joint estimation of map features with respect to their number as well as location is reviewed.

  • Overview of Wideband Radar Imaging Technology at MIT Lincoln Laboratory

    The science and art of wideband radar imaging of satellites and ballistic missiles have matured over the past forty-three years at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. They have stimulated the development of powerful signal-processing techniques that have revolutionized the field of wideband image generation and led wideband image analysts to a deeper understanding of ballistic missiles, orbiting satellites, and aircraft.

  • Radar Principles

    Advances in radar system hardware and software have enabled radar systems to detect, differentiate, classify, image, and track the range, altitude, direction, or velocity of multiple moving or fixed targets simultaneously. A radar system has a receiver intended to detect the reflected electromagnetic waves, indicating an object with a different dielectric constant in the propagation direction. Doppler radar is typically used to detect moving targets, and estimate their velocity. Security systems motion detectors and door openers are common uses of Doppler radar¿¿¿based motion detectors. There are two basic radar configurations based on the spatial relationship between the transmitting and receiving antennas: monostatic and bistatic. The major areas of radar application are briefly described, including military defense and weapons systems, remote monitoring of the Earth's surface, the ocean, and other planets, reconnaissance imaging, ground¿¿¿penetrating radar for archeological expeditions, weather surveillance, air traffic control, and others.

  • Doppler Radar Physiological Assessments

    The Doppler radar detects all motion in the radar field of view, through detection of phase variations in the received signal. The challenge in physiological monitoring via Doppler radar is to effectively isolate the subject's random fidgeting physiological motion. The percentage of measurement interval containing significant motion may be used as a measure of subject rest/activity cycle, determining the degree of restlessness, for example, actigraphy. Phase demodulation provides the output proportional to chest displacement, and this information can be further analyzed to extract respiratory and heart rates, analyze the shape of respiratory signals, assess heart rate variability (HRV) parameters, and estimate displacement amplitude and related respiratory volume. The magnitude of received RF power can be analyzed to determine cardiopulmonary radar cross section (RCS) and further determine subject orientation. The variation of RCS with size and curvature of the target surface is the basis for detecting orientation of a human subject.

  • Physiological Doppler Radar Overview

    This chapter introduces system¿¿¿level analysis of the Doppler radar system for physiological sensing. The design considerations and performance trade¿¿¿offs were discussed for radio frequency (RF) front¿¿¿end, baseband, and signal¿¿¿processing modules of the system. The chapter explains the need for quadrature receiver in the context of physiological monitoring, as well as associated trade¿¿¿offs including channel imbalance, DC offset, baseband coupling, phase demodulation, and noise issues. It presents graphical representation of quadrature outputs to explain trade¿¿¿off of frequency operation, effects of channel imbalance and AC coupling, and demodulations methods. The operation frequency and power requirements were analyzed in terms of component availability, safety, and penetration into human tissue. The chapter introduces signal¿¿¿processing methods commonly used for rate extraction, including peak detection, fast Fourier transform (FFT), and autocorrelation. Finally, it discusses noise sources that cause signal¿¿¿to¿¿¿noise ratio (SNR).

  • Radar Resource Management for Target Tracking-A Stochastic Control Approach

    This chapter develops a stochastic control formalism for radar resource management. It formulates the sensor management problem as a two¿¿¿timescale stochastic control problem. Two alternative formulations are given for the micromanagement problem, one formulation deals with maximizing the mutual information of multiple targets, the other formulation deals with a partially observed Markov decision processes (POMDPs) setup involving a finite state Markov chain. The chapter illustrates how to parameterize such a monotone policy, so that the optimal parameterized policy can be computed via simulation¿¿¿based stochastic optimization. The chapter gives sufficient conditions under which the optimal micromanagement policy is monotone with respect to the state. It presents an alternative formulation of sensor management for a maneuvering target modeled as a jump Markov linear system (JMLS) and describes several myopic sensor management algorithms. The micromanagement problem deals with scheduling the optimal Bayesian filter while the macromanagement problem deals with allocating target priority.

  • Passive Microwave Equalizers for Radar Receiver Design

    Receiver design for digital radar and optical communication involves optimization and realization of an equalizing filter to provide a suitable signal at the input of the decision circuit. This is a frequently encountered problem in filter design, where one needs to realize a network capable of having an arbitrary response in a given frequency band. This chapter approaches to approximate the target frequency response for a single equalizer using the real frequency technique (RFT). Since the RFT optimizes equalizer functions that are realizable, it can also directly synthesize the elements of the equalizing filter. The solution uses a Levenberg-Marquardt-More optimization technique. The optimization produces realizable functions without an a priori choice of equalizer topology and does not require an analytic form of the system transfer function to be assumed. The chapter also gives examples of microwave equalizers for radar applications in the 8¿¿GHz range.
