A feasibility demonstration RADAR system that operates at 94 GHz is outlined. A major goal of the program is the obtaining of RADAR echoes from orbiting objects for space object identification purposes. The RADAR is a linear FM pulse compression system with an eventual pulse time (1 ms)-bandwidth (1 GHz) product of 106. Experimental results of short range tests are discussed as well as details of the phase-locked loop linearizing system employed.
