In this paper, we design and fabricate a short range FMCW radar which detects and tracks a moving target in a two-dimensional domain using dual transceiver modules. For the short range radar, we propose a scheme for alternate extraction of the two-dimensional positions using one-dimensional range information from time division transceiver modules, and successfully apply the scheme to the two-dimensional short range radar. Measured results of the targets at 10 m and 30 m are presented as performance demonstration of each transceiver module. Also the performance of the two-dimensional radar is demonstrated using a two-dimensional target map, which uses the range bin corresponding to the frequency resolution, and the effectiveness of the proposed scheme is validated.
