[kən¦tin·yə·wəs ¦wāv ′rā‚där]
(engineering)
A radar system in which a transmitter sends out a continuous flow of radio energy; the target reradiates a small fraction of this energy to a separate receiving antenna. Also known as continuous-wave Doppler radar.

Another highlight is a 79 GHz binary phase-modulated continuous-wave radar transceiver with TX-to-RX spillover cancellation in 28nm CMOS (developed together with Panasonic), and a flexible thin-film NFC tag powered by a commercial USB reader device at 13.

The system identifies the types of radar threats, measures the threat parameters and then uses the transmitters to jam both pulse and continuous-wave radars, while control features ensure that home-on-jam weapons are not allowed enough time to acquire the aircraft.
