The frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radar is an alternative to the pulse radar when the distance to the target is short. Typical FMCW radar implementations have a homodyne architecture transceiver which limits the performances for short-range applications: the beat frequency can be relatively small and placed in the frequency range affected by(More)
Infrastructure monitoring applications can require the tracking of slowly moving points of a certain structure. Given a certain point from a structure to be monitored, in the context of available SAR products where the image is already focused in a slant range azimuth grid, it is not obvious if this point is the scattering center, if it is in layover or if(More)
This paper presents a novel wideband sweep nonlinearity software correction method for a frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) transceiver based on the high-order ambiguity function (HAF) and time resampling. By emphasizing the polynomial-phase nature of the FMCW signal, it is shown that the HAF processing algorithm is well suited for estimating the(More)
A frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) X-band radar platform for millimetric displacements measurement of short-range targets is presented in this paper. The platform’s transceiver is based on a heterodyne architecture because the beat frequency is relatively small for short-range targets and it can be placed in the frequency range influenced by the(More)
An improved composite right/left-handed (CRLH) unit cell optimized for a leaky-wave (LW) antenna is presented. This CRLH cell consists of a series of one transmission line, an interdigital capacitor, another transmission line and a shunt shorted stub. Introducing the transmission lines, the parasitic self-resonances of the capacitor are shifted outside the(More)
Infrastructure monitoring applications can require the tracking of slowly moving points of a certain structure. Given a certain point from a structure to be monitored, in the context of available spaceborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) products, where the image is already focused in a slant range—azimuth grid, it is not obvious if this point is the(More)
This paper proposes a vibration-induced micro-Doppler estimation method for oscillating targets in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images using azimuth time-frequency tracking and a matched signal transform. The approach involves an azimuth defocusing of the SAR image in order to access the phase history. The tracking in azimuth is based on local polynomial(More)
