Abstract:

ARO Contract DAAL-03-91-G-0202 is an instrumentation grant for upgrading the University of Michigans 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.
