Micropower Impulse Radar (MIR)

LLNL's micropower-impulse radar (MIR) presents a new paradigm in radar technology. MIR uses $10 of off-the-shelf components to outperform conventional radar and sensor equipment costing as much as $40,000. Both the radar transmitter and receiver are contained in a package measuring just two square inches.
Patent Abstract: 
The technology is an outgrowth of the world's fastest solid-state digitizer, which was designed to measure sub-nanosecond events generated by fusion experiments on the Laboratory's Nova laser. MIR is based on the radiation of short voltage impulses that are reflected off nearby objects and detected by MIR's extremely high-speed sampling receiver.
