SkyRadar Base Module
New call-to-action

PSR Base Module

At the heart of the system, the server card controls a so-called noise radar. This noise is electronically converted into a pulse radar. The transmitter can emit very short pulses through the antenna and monitor the reflected pulses. The pulses are reflected of fixed objects (buildings, trees…) and moving objects (cars, people…) which pass the antenna beam. The Base Module also provides the opportunity to study Doppler effects.
The signals are digitally processed using a Digital Signal Processor (DSP), data is visualized through the analysis and visualization software SkyRadar Scopes. 

 

General Features

  • Active radar, designed for perfectly save indoors and outside operation (transmitter output power significantly lower as such of a mobile phone
  • The following operating modes can be technically enabled in the hardware
    o   Pulse
    o   Doppler
    o   Moving Target Indication (MTI)
  • Antenna
    o   Standard: Double Horn Antenna
    o   Default operation 24 GHz
    o   Antennae can be exchanged in plug-and play concept
  • Powerful and fast radar image processor.
  • All measurements are performed in real time. No sub‐sampling or substitution techniques.
  • Optimized for detection of real targets in a 3-dimensional space within laboratories or outside , remote controlled remote controlled aircrafts. No limiting target table or rail system required.
