Abstract:

Frequency-modulated continuous-wave radars operate by sweeping the signal frequency and calculating distance from the echo of a target. Two situations are explored in this report 1 the maximum distance the operating radar can be picked up by a receiver and 2 what jamming power is needed for the signal processing to not have detections. The distance is calculated analytically, while the jamming power is done through simulation by incorporating jammer noise to the radar signal processing.
