Speed determination is accomplished by correlating the received signals of two side-looking radar sensors. The theoretically achievable precision is derived. Test measurements are done to give a prove of concept. The measurements are done in two different scenarios. The test measurements are carried out using a bi-static 24 GHz frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radar.},

    @inproceedings{sporer2016,
    abstract = {This paper presents a reconfigurable focal plane array (FPA) for lens or reflector based antenna systems in the 24 GHz ISM band. The FPA consists of five equal uniformlyspaced antenna elements with switchable polarization, fabricated on a four layer substrate using conventional low-cost PCB technology. For compactness and increased bandwidth, the design is based on aperture-coupled patch radiators on top of the substrate, each embedded in a cavity in order to reduce mutual coupling. Feeding is done by means of two orthogonal H-shaped slots which are excited by microstrip transmission lines etched on the bottom layer. A discrete pin-diode single pole, double throw (SPDT) switch directly below the patch allows for polarization control and facilitates a compact element size of 10mm x 10 mm including the cavity walls. Another discrete pin-diode SP5T switch allows the selection of one of the five FPA elements at a time.},

    abstract = {With the growing application of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) and underwater construction, i.e. robotic manipulator and maintenance systems, there is an increasing demand on precise underwater distance sensors. In this paper we present a low–cost, short–range and contactless sensor which uses electromagnetical (EM) waves for measuring distances underwater. The measurement system is based on interferometric radar applying a six– port interferometer and using EM waves at a frequency of 2.4GHz. Measurement series in fresh water have been carried out showing an precision of below 100 µm up to a distance of 35mm with only 8dBm of transmit power. Due to the high measurement rate the system can also be employed for vibration analysis. Additionally, by connecting a commercial 2.4GHz data transceiver, it is imaginable for the system to be simultaneously used for high data rate communication between e.g. AUV and unmanned underwater platforms (UUP).},
