Abstract:

Airborne CW doppler proximity sensors are very sensitive, but leaks precise height measurement. It may be possible to estimate the heigth at the terminal phase (the case where the sensor is at a heigth close to ground) precisely by using the doppler shift and amplitude information. The thesis includes this novel concept with theoritical analysis and simulation results.
