Abstract
A coherent instrumentation radar was designed and developed to support the collection of target and clutter backscatter data of 95 GHz. The radar is completely solid-state and uses a phase locked Gunn oscillator and injection locked IMPATT oscillators to achieve the frequency stability required for coherent signal processing. Data can be collected under a selectable set of pulsewidth, polarization and pulse repetition interval conditions. Since data integrity (coherence) is almost totally dependent on system spectral purity, major design effort was focused on signal generation and control. System tests have demonstrated that the required degree of stability and control has been achieved for operation with both stationary and moving targets.
