The educational platform RALF has recently acquired its first SDR radar. The system transmits a versatile waveform (e.g., FMCW, CW, FSK) in K-band (24 GHz) and includes an advanced dual channel receiver.
Data are given in baseband and can be stored in Matlab format for post-processing operations: ideal for implementing state-of-the-art or new detection algorithms. It is an easy access to radar experimental data enabling both teaching and research activities.
It paves the way for new teaching activities (practice labs, student projects, lectures illustrations...) and also strengthens signal processing research activities such as wideband radar processing and cooperative radar/communication techniques.
See our first collected data with 2GHz bandwidth of a small remote-controlled car driving towards the radar.
