Abstract
An investigation into the feasibility of producing in-house ultra wideband (UWB) radar for experimental purposes was undertaken. The principal purpose for this system will be for through the will radar imaging. Several architectures were examined and the most promising avenues were explored further. Wherever possible off-the-shelf components were selected to shorten the development time and costs associated with a new technology such as UWB radar. For each challenging area a potential solution is put forward and a complete system could be produced for the single transmit and receive case by the end of this year. The solutions proposed lend themselves a modular approach and could be scaled-up to produce a multiple transmit and receive radar system with little difficulty.
