Automotive engineers are repeatedly faced with the issue of choosing radars with the best angular resolution while having reduced processing times. In this paper, a novel extrapolation method is presented to estimate the amplitudes and phases for virtual antenna elements at the receiver periphery. This method has shown to resolve two targets...

We present a simulation-based assessment of the performance potential of distributed MIMO (D-MIMO), multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) and particularly the combined D/MU-MIMO operation, for which we extend previously published scheduling and beamforming principles. The assessment study reveals that, when optimizing average user throughput performance, D...

In this article a novel waveform, Random SlowTime Code Division Multiple Access (ST-CDMA) for MIMO radar is presented and investigated. ST-CDMA means that the waveforms of the different transmitters are orthogonal per burst, while conventional CDMA implies orthogonal waveforms of the different transmitters per pulse. In particular, the Doppler...

Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output (MIMO) arrays provide more degrees of freedom than conventional phased arrays. They require that every transmitting element of the array can be identified when received. One way to achieve this is to give every element its own unique frequency. Offset-transmitters may be used to introduce MIMO or Doppler...

In a phased array radar which uses Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) techniques, each (group of) element(s) transmits a different waveform. This extra degree of freedom in the design of a phased array radar potentially yields an advantage for improved suppression of sidelobe clutter and jamming. In this paper a Space-Time Block Coding (STBC)...

A coherent two-dimensional (2D) multiple signal classification (MUSIC) processing for the simultaneous estimation of angular and range target positions has been presented. A 2D spatial smoothing technique is also introduced to cope with the coherent behaviour of the received echoes, which may result in a rank deficiency of the signals covariance...

In this paper, a new signal processing technique for Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) image processing of a Linear Frequency-Modulated Continuous Wave (LFMCW) automotive radar was developed. The image is the range-speed-direction data cube. The technique comprises two improvements to the standard MIMO image processing: 1) A fast unambiguous...

At TNO an innovative concept to obtain inside building awareness with stand-off, through-the-wall radar has been developed: SAPPHIRE. The system concept exploits particular phase behavior in the 3D radar data to extract dominant scatterers inside a building. These scatterers can be reconstructed from the data using an overcomplete dictionary and...

In this paper we present a technique to estimate the calibration coefficients of a coherent Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) array radar built on a printed circuit board (PCB). Due to the integrated structure and the MIMO nature of the system, a direct measurement of each antenna element behavior cannot be performed. The proposed method is...

In this paper the authors analyze the use of Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) applied to coherent Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) radar systems. One of the main limitations in exploiting the orthogonal condition in the time domain for MIMO radars is the reduction of the unambiguous Doppler interval. With respect to frequency modulated...

The work presented in this paper was aimed at the design of a compact radar device to be used for private area surveillance applications. The radar is connected to a pan tilt zoom camera and it provides the camera system with high accuracy position information (bearing and range) of moving targets; in this way the camera can be steered to the...

The paper presents different processing schemes that have been investigated in order to evaluate the direction of arrival (DOA) with a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) radar. Conventional digital beam forming (DBF) and super resolution algorithm (MUSIC) have been applied. The results provided by them have been compared with a compressive...

Multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) processing is a consolidated technique in communication systems thanks to the benefits that it offers in multipath fading environments. In recent years, studies have shown how the performances of conventional phased-array radar can be improved by using the same approach. This letter illustrates how the...

Surveillance in an urban environment under all atmospheric conditions and situations can be performed by means of radars. The multipath created by buildings and moving targets can be exploited, for example in order to increase SNR. In this paper we present the initial results of the measurements of a moving target in a roadblock scenario in non...

In this paper, the sensitivity of the error rate performance of MIMO-OFDM-based practical systems (WiMAX and LTE) to wide band channel properties is investigated. The behavior of the wideband channel is characterized in terms of delay spread (DS) and angular spread (AS). The impacts of DS and AS on the system performance are addressed with both...

The objective of sonar processing is to enhance the signal received from the target with respect to noise or clutter in order to enhance detection, classification and localisation. Range-bearing information is commonly obtained through beamforming and matched-filtering of data acquired with a densely sampled detector array. The source sampling,...

The future broadband wireless cellular systems evolved UTRAN (E-UTRAN) and WiMAX are receiving a lot of interest in recent years. Both systems deploy orthogonal frequency division multiplex (OFDM) physical layer consisting of large number of mutually orthogonal sub-carriers. This physical layer provides high robustness against multi-path effects...

A phased-array FMCW radar has been design and built from COTS components. The generation of the frequency sweep is done by mixing a central local oscillator signal with a baseband sweep of a direct digital synthesizer (DDS). To ensure maximum flexibility the receive side has been equipped with it's own swept signal. The transmit frequency...
