Development of a new tunable multiband ultra-wideband (UWB) radar sensor is presented. The UWB sensor integrates the transmitter, receiver, and antennas completely in a single package using microwave integrated circuits and operates over multiple pulse durations or frequency bands. The sensor can transmit pulses with duration varying from 450 to 1170 ps and peak power from 200 to 400 mW and can detect signals with a conversion gain of 6.5-9.5 dB and a dynamic range of 50dB over a 5.5-GHz RF bandwidth. It has a range resolution of around 1 in. The sensor performs well through tests of various samples, demonstrating its success for subsurface sensing. The multipulse/multiband feature allows the sensor to achieve both fine-range resolution and long operating range and enhanced target detection and classification
