LogLinear Group undertook the challenge of rapidly prototyping and building out an Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar for the specific purpose of detecting the signature of sniper barrels that serve as waveguides.  It was determined that an ultra wide-band radar can exploit the band-specific characteristics of the target and that a purpose-built radar may have success, even in complex environments.
