Continuous-wave frequency-modulated radar, or FMCW radar, is simple in design, small in size and weight and uses low transmitting power. The range resolution depends on the bandwidth. FMCWradar is used in applications ranging from guided weapons systems to vehicle collision avoidance systems. Measuring the distance to the target is the essential feature of FMCW radar. Firstly, this thesis introduces the basic structure of the FMCW radar and the principle formeasuring distance. Secondly, by using software-dened radio (SDR),FMCW radar can be implemented and congured with a reduced costand complexity. In this report, the radar is implemented by means ofthe software GNU Radio Companion with a test signal. HackRF may be used in future work with an osmocom source instead of the testsignal.
