NextGen 8 GHz Pulse Radar - Overview

NextGen 8 GHz Pulse Radar


The NextGen Pulse Radar is a true close range pulse radar with a range resolution better than 11 cm, a range up to 25 m and a pulse width of 0.5 nano-seconds.

The system operates with the SkyRadar FreeScopes Software,  a control center for Digital Signal Processing (DSP), which provides many scopes (A-Scopes, B-Scopes, PPI), control interfaces and filters. Customers can start small and extend the application over time, just by purchasing and downloading additional modules in our portal. The radar allows for highest flexibility in the learning process, with a very low peak pulse output power (-0.7 to 6.3 dBm). 

The radar transceiver and antenna are mounted into the horn pointing on aa parabolic reflector. The device can be placed on a rotary tripod. The pulse module can optionally be replaced in minutes by an FMCW, a noise radar and many others.

This system has been developed for training and research in civil aviation, defense, universities and industry.
