Backscatter theory and measurements for a millimeter-wave focused-beam radar

A portable millimeter-wave, fully polarimetric, high-resolution radar that uses a focused scalar horn-lens antenna has been developed. The one-way, copolarized beam in the focal plane has a measured -3 dB spot size diameter (circularly symmetric) of 4.6 in. The focused-beam properties of the antenna give the radar high angle-angle (azimuth and elevation… CONTINUE READING
