Abstract : ARO Contract DAAL-03-91-G-0202 is an instrumentation grant for upgrading the University of Michigan's millimeter-wave radar systems, which operate at 35, 94, 140, and 215 GHz. The funds were used to (1) improve the data acquisition and control system, which operates all four channels, (2) convert the 35, 94 into single-antenna configurations, convert the 140 GHz into a coherent-on-receive polarimetric mode, and add a bistatic scattering capability to the 35, 94 and 140 GHz systems. Millimeter-waves, radar scattering, terrain characterization.
