4 May 2018 Software-defined radios for the implementation of randomized arrays
Author Affiliations +
A data collection system using software defined radios to perform multi-static radar measurements is presented. The basic architecture and operational capabilities of the selected software defined radios (SDRs) are described. Issues associated with device synchronization are discussed, and waveform implementation procedures are also outlined. Finally, results of preliminary experiments are presented, indicating the potential of SDRs for realizing a cost-effective radar system testbed. In particular, it is demonstrated that by rearranging the SDR configuration, it becomes possible to realize various receive array configurations for detection of moving targets.
