Abstract
We present a frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) multiple input multiple output (MIMO) radar demonstrator system operating in the W-band at frequencies around 100 GHz. It consists of a two dimensional sparse array together with hardware for signal generation and image reconstruction that we will describe in more detail. The geometry of the sparse array was designed with the help of simulations to the aim of imaging at distances of just a few up to more than 150 meters. The FMCW principle is used to extract range information. To obtain information in both cross-range directions a back-propagation algorithm is used and further explained in this paper. Finally, we will present first measurements and explain the calibration process.
