Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


This paper presents a quasi-CDMA synchronization technique for a bistatic loosely coupled frequency-modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radar system. The proposed method utilizes a shared low-frequency reference and implements synchronization through subsequent signal processing. The system configuration, signal model, and post-processing steps for phase coherency establishment are discussed. Experimental measurements using FMCW radar modules verify the effectiveness of the proposed technique in achieving phase-synchronized bistatic measurements. The results demonstrate the feasibility of phase synchronization without the need for additional hardware.
