The frequency modulated continuous wave FMCW radar principle has been used in aircraft radio altimeters to measure height above the surface of the Earth. This paper describes the performance of a typical commercial-off-the- shelf 77 GHz automobile collision avoidance radar that is been adapted for an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle UAV altimeter application. A lap top-based, bench-top assembly is described.
