Abstract

This paper presents a modification of a Linear Frequency Modulation-Continuous Waveform shipborne surveillance radar with two antennas to transform it into an Airport Surface Detection Equipment with a single antenna. The most important additional subsystem for this new equipment is a Reflected Power Canceller to overcome the problem of insufficient isolation between the transmitter and receiver due to imperfect matching between the transmitter and the antenna. This system is currently being developed by the Spanish company Indra Sistemas S.A. in co-operation with the Technical University of Madrid.
