    I've been to google, but all that I've been able to turn up is a bunch
    of companies that want to sell radar equipment. I'm thinking of using
    the 24GHz range for it. Max ranging distance is about 600 feet. If
    anyone has any design information or sources, please let me know. Thanks.

    Try Googling radar principles or radar fundamentals instead of just radar.

    Best not run that around any cop cars or speed traps, or without
    an appropriate FCC license for that matter. Speed radar operates at
    (among other bands) 24GHz.

    And somewhere around the time of 07/19/2004 21:44, the world stopped and
    listened as Dr. Anton T. Squeegee contributed the following to humanity:
    I fully understand what you are saying. Since this will not be mounted
    in a vehicle, I don't have to worry too much about interference with
    police radar. I do plan on obtaining a FCC temporary authority license
    for this before operating it.

    You have some further work to do in just defining the problem. Do you
    want to measure range? Direction? Presence? What other things are in
    view? Is a human pointing the beam at the target or is this supposed
    to be completely automated?

    For distances under 600 feet I highly suspect optical rangefinding will
    be much easier (although it has a lot of limitations too).

  6. A good book is "Introduction to Airborne Radar", George Stimson, ISBN =

    Covers more than just aircraft, covers ground mapping, Doppler (duh), spark
    gaps, ranging, math, frequencies, etc. You'll find out lotz of principles.
    Expensive book though, $129 from Amazon. Got my copy by mistake, boss
    ordered book with wrong ISBN number and got this book, gave it to me.

    Good stuff. Think it is used as a class book.

    This might not help, but the right amount of googling should turn up
    a US Navy pub on ECM, radar, and such, IIRC.
