Institute of Radio Frequency Engineering and Electronics (IHE)

Radar Systems

After the invention of the radar principle by Christian Hülsmeyer in 1904 in the 20th century nearly all radar systems were big, expensive and produced a high output power for defense, air and space applications. The beginning of the 20th century then brought the market success of automotive radars and also  a large increase of radar applications in industrial automation. Since 2007 the IHE performs research in the area of those new low-power radar systems. The focus is on system concepts, modulation schemes, interference and signal processing. The major research topics in the field of radar technology are:

  • radar system concepts and signal processing
  • interference between automotive radars
  • joint realization of radar sensing and communication based on OFDM
  • radar sensors for high-accuracy distance measurements

In the following IHE´s major research projects on radar technology are given:
