Abstract

This project models the operation of an interception-resistant automotive radar and demonstrates its susceptibility to jamming. The initial hardware design was based on open courseware from MIT Lincoln Laboratory. Prior to the construction of the radar, expected results were recorded using MATLAB and LTspice simulations. The interference signals were designed in MATLAB and transmitted using a software-defined radio. Final testing was completed using a spectrum analyzer and software designed to plot the time-lapsed location of a detected object.
