First results of a joint measurement campaign with PAMIR-Ka and MIRANDA-94
Fraunhofer FHR has participated in the international measurement campaign of the NATO research task group SET-250 with two airborne SAR systems in July 2019. The general objective of the trials was to investigate the use of multidimensional radar to increase the performance of radar imaging systems. The first system PAMIR-Ka is a multi-channel pulsed radar system operating at 34 GHz with a very high bandwidth of up to 8 GHz. The second system MIRANDA-94 is a multichannel frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radar with up to 3 GHz at 94 GHz center frequency with a dual polarized antenna. The paper introduces the systems, explains the data collection, and presents first results with respect to multi-look, multi-frequency, multi-polarization, and multi-aspect radar imaging of a test site with military targets.
