Purpose and goal
The purpose has been to perform a feasability study of the fundamentally new radar principle Continuous Arbitrary Wave (CAW), demonstrated by SAAB. Characteristic of the radar principle is the simultaneous transmission and reception, made possible by modern digital technology. The goal, for the new radar principle, to study the algorithms for the signal processing and the architecture for its implementation in hardware, as a base for the continued studies is met. In addition, an initial project consortium is created for the continuation of the project.
Expected results and effects
Within the academy, the project has contributed to greater knowledge and greater awareness to radar technology and its applications. The active companies have achieved a better understanding of how the radar sensor performance and functionality can be developed by digital technologies. The project has also resulted in a substantial foundation for further research, and highlighted the radar area´s development potential through the ongoing digital development. Long term expectation is that Elektronikcentrum i Halmstad will develop into a national radar center.
Planned approach and implementation
The project has had a broad approach with expertise from different areas of competence. This has made, despite limited resources, that an extensive review of the new radar principle been possible. The project´s approach has been to divide the work into three so-called threads, and then bring these together in a final analysis. A synergistic effect of this has been a substantial exchange of knowledge between the different competence areas. The new knowledge and ideas have inspired the participants in its future work, not necessarily within the same project consortium.
