Abstract
Range resolution in FMCW radar systems has been achieved using multichannel surface acoustive wave (SAW) filter devices. This paper describes the basic system design concepts employed for developing range cells in linear F!ACW radar using the SAW filters. The techniques discussed are currently being used in low power solid-state millimeter wave radar for air-to-ground terminal guidance of anti-armor munitions. The narrow band SAW filters are incorporated in the receiver IF sections where each filter represents a range cell that is dimensionally proportional to range. The small size, light weight, low power consumption and stable per-formance characteristics make the SAW filter an ideal choice for missile seeker applications.
