Issues of practical use of short-range radar system on the basis of ultrashort pulses with low power consumption.
Abstract. The problems of the specific use of specialized components to create short-range radar system on the basis of ultrashort pulses with low power consumption based on single-chip transceiver without the use of high-speed ADC are considered. The results of laboratory measurements of system parameters are presented. We have shown the possibilities of the system practical use as a sensor for the people detection on the protected territory, a sensor for the obstacle detection in the technical vision system, a sensor for remote measurement and control of human breathing and heartbeat parameters in medicine or for work related with an increased risk, a portable radar for the people detection over the obstacles, under the rubble of building structures, under the snow avalanches, educational laboratory equipment.
Keywords: short-range radar, ultrashort pulses, ultra-wideband signals, single-chip transceiver, sensor.
