### Radar Antenna Quantity and functional performance

Millimeter wave radar SoC (system on a chip) are evolving from 4 to 72 antennas on a single chip. Is there a simple (ELI5) explanation as to why 72 antennas (vs 4) are desirable? My intuition ...

### Doppler Cone: What exactly is it?

I'm trying to understand Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). It appears that it makes use of what's called a "Doppler cone". I understand Doppler frequency shifts of light, but I'm not sure what the cone ...

### Conjugated-Phase Matching

I am working on imaging applications of phase-conjugation in optics, in particular phase-conjugation imaging from recorded holograms. I have found several useful sources, but I cannot find a book ...

### Loss of beam power over astronomical distances

pardon my choice of words, but English isn't my native language, so I might use the wrong terms at some places. Beside this, I do have a hypothetical situation which might be a bit off reality (...

### Doppler radar electric field expressions

Consider the right handed coordinate system $(x,y,z)$ in which a stationnary radar is positioned at the origin and a metallic plate (initial position $z_0$) that is moving along the $z$ axis with ...

### Speed between two cars with radar

I found a programming problem that calculated the speed between two cars as below and I would like to know how the calculation is done. It is about determining the speed of lead car. The coordinate ...

### Signal's phase change requirement for benefiting from coherent integration

Maximizing the potential of coherent integration requires that the signal’s phase vary by less than 90deg over the entire integration interval. What exactly does that mean in a FMCW radar application ...

### Radar waves all waves not working under water

was just wondering why all waves don't work under water for? I know they work for 10 meters "but" after that they don't. Does it have anything to do with it's wavelength? Or is it just that the ...

### Is there a way to recalculate radar detection range given the old and new probability of detection and false alarm?

I'm reading through some radar books and I'm trying to find out if there's an easy method or equation to recalculate radar detection range given only the original radar detection range, original ...

### Looking for full equation for radar cross section of corner reflector

There's a well-known formula for the RCS of a corner reflector (aka corner cube), to wit $\sigma \varpropto \frac{L^4}{\lambda^2}$ . I've found several sources which cheerfully say "...valid for \$ ...
