Abstract

This paper presents a concept study of a novel, compact secondary
surveillance radar for localization and identification of small-sized,
unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) in controlled air space. For
high-precision localization, a UAV can be equipped with miniaturized
backscatter transponders like it is common practice in civil and
military aviation. They further allow transmitting arbitrary data to the
surveillance radar which can be used for friend-or-foe identification.
To demonstrate the concept, a 24 GHz multichannel radar system is used
in combination with a appropriate transponder based on the switched
injection-locked oscillator (SILO) concept. We show a measurement to
estimate the position and radial velocity of a small quadrocopter UAV.
The presented system results from the project VaMEx-LAOLa, where a local
ad-hoc localization and landing system for UAVs is developed.
