Digest to the International Microwave Symposium 2008
In recent years, cooperative frequency-modulated continuous-wave radar based ranging and positioning systems attained significant attraction. In this paper, we present a novel analysis approach of the performance of these incoherent systems, with a special focus set on phase noise effects. We show the behavior in different signal to noise ratio conditions and compare two competing evaluation concepts. The results are verified on real measurement data, taken with a prototype ranging system in the 5.8 GHz ISM band.
