Summary The project is to design and analyze an opportunistic (randomly distributed) digital phased array for radar. The array is comprised of self-standing transmit-receive (T/R) modules that have no wire connections other than prime power. Time and phase synchronization are done wirelessly, and baseband data is transferred wirelessly between the elements and a central controller. Synchronization IDs done continuously using a feedback algorithm, so that synchronization is maintained even if the channel between the elements and controller changes. Antenna beams are formed digitally in a computer processor. Radar processing is also performed in the computer processor.
