WHITE PAPER AWR Software for the Design and Modeling of a Solid-State T/R Module for Radar Applications Radio detection and ranging (radar) technology is used to find the direction and position of a target, as well as to determine the distance between the target and source using radio frequency. Radar systems can be classified in several ways, such as type of waveform, platform, antenna type used, function, operating frequency band, mission, and range. Popular radar systems include monostatic, bistatic, synthetic aperture (SAR), continuous wave (CW), frequency-modulated CW (FMCW), moving-target indication (MTI), pulsed, Doppler, and weather. At the heart of all radar systems is a transmit/receive (T/R) module, and often multiple T/R modules are used in radars that employ phased array antennas for beamsteering and multiple-in-multiple-out (MIMO) technologies.
