• The design of a monostatic, ultra wide band,VHF, pulse radar for detection of close-in targets 

      Van der Merwe, P. J. (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2003-03)
      Ground penetrating radar is currently proving itself as an invaluable tool for the prediction of geological structures in the mining environment. Borehole radar is a specific application of this technology, useful in the ...
    • The design of an FM-CW proximity radar 

      Kellerman, Robert A. (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2004-04)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The development of a small, cost effective short range FM-CW radar as well as the design and optimization of a double helix antenna is discussed. The FM-CW radar operates at Sband (2450 - 2550 MHz) and ...
    • High power LDMOS L-band radar amplifiers 

      McIver, Stuart Roderick Arthur (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The thesis details the design, construction and experimental evaluation of 30W, 35W and 250W L-Band LDMOS Radar amplifiers. Each amplifier module contains an integrated high speed power supply in order ...
    • Hybrid Finite Element/Boundary Element solutions of general two dimensional electromagnetic scattering problems 

      Meyer, Frans J. C. (Frans Johannes Christiaan) (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 1991-02)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: A two-dimensional Coupled Element Method (CEM) for solving electromagnetic scattering problems involving lossy, inhomogeneous, arbitrarily shaped cylinders, was investigated and implemented. The CEM ...
    • Implementation of a Low-cost FM-CW Radar 

      Hoole, Jonathan G. (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2008-03)
      Modern technology is reducing the cost of electronic devices. The speed of these devices and their reliability is improving. They can be used to implement low cost systems without compromising performance. The design ...
    • Linearisation of an FM-CW 94.5 GHz millimeter-wave radar 

      De Wit, W. M. (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-03)
      The topic of millimeter wave radar systems is introduced. These radars are used in a wide range of applications in both the aviation and automotive field due to the resolution advantages which MMW systems have above their ...
    • Upgrading of a radar system to implement a firmware based pulse compressor 

      Rust, Johannes Stephanus Warnich (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2007-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This project investigates the improvement of an existing radar system by means of currently available technologies and signal processing techniques. Upgrades are aimed to improve the system's speci cations ...
