A study of an ultrawideband frequency-modulated continuous-wave radar with an extended frequency sweep from 0.5 to 8 GHz is presented. It has been applied to through-the-wall human detection. This work presents the modeling of wall attenuation followed by real measurements. The radar system is presented, and trials of human being tracking are shown. This radar will enable large stand-off distance capabilities and dasiadasiain-depthpsilapsila building detection.
