Open System Configurable Architecture Radar (OSCAR) is a software-defined radar (SDR) platform built upon a flexible software architecture for defining waveforms and new radar modes. Possible applications range from radar cross-section (RCS) characterization to counter-unmanned aerial systems (C-UAS) to synthetic aperture radar (SAR). With sample-to-sample control of the waveforms, OSCAR can be optimized to maximize target detection and discrimination performance, operate in adverse signal environments, and provide a low probability of intercept/detection capability. The RF front-end is built entirely from commercially available components to mitigate hardware obsolescence and avoid vendor lock-in issues.


A Novel, Industry-Disrupting Solution

Traditionally, radars require complex RF front-ends with multiple stages of mixing, filtering, and amplification. This hardware complexity drives up SWaP-C and results in an inflexible hardware and software architecture. Using SDR technology, OSCAR provides users with an unprecedented level of control at a lower cost and with a clear path for upgrades and maintenance. Further, OSCAR provides the flexibility required to minimize the design and implementation of new operational modes, which otherwise would require a complete ground-up redesign with traditional radar. OSCAR’s software architecture allows users to control the transmitted waveforms sample-by-sample, thus satisfying multiple mission needs without having to invest in additional hardware components.
