Abstract:
A low cost Stepped Frequency Continuous Wave sensor is proposed in this work as radar module for the long range monitoring of environmental scenarios subject to landslide risk. A radar configuration based on the adoption of a variable scanning antenna array is proposed for the accurate detection of land movements. Furthermore, a X-Band radar module prototype is realized and tested to demonstrate the high resolution capabilities of the proposed configuration.
