Measurement of Target Parameters Using the Dsss Radar

By Nirmalendu Sinha, Debadatta Kandar, and Rabindra Nath Bera
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 1, 185-195, 2008


With the technological growth of broadband wireless technology like CDMA, OFDM and MIMO, a lots of development efforts towards wireless communication system and imaging radar system are well justified. It has been recently shown that multipleinput multiple-output (MIMO) antenna systems have the potential to dramatically improve the performance of communication systems over single antenna systems. Efforts are also being imparted towards a Convergence Technology. The convergence between a communication and radar technology which will result in ITS (Intelligent Transport System) and other applications. This motivates development of the present article. This is an effort in the direction to utilize or converge the communication technologies towards radar and to achieve the interference and clutter free quality remote images of targets.
