Abstract: 
The utility and technical capabilities of creating semiconductor coherent radar at the millimeter radiowave (Ka-band) for monitoring surface traffic in airports are substantiated. This radar has a number of advantages as compared with existing ones, in particular, the better mass-dimension and operating characteristics, significantly less power consumption and the level of microwave radiation, and it also provides the detection of moving targets and their classification on velocity. The selection of technical solutions is justified, the experimental radar sample is developed and its tests were carried out. The key fundamental component parts providing the novel features and high technical radar characteristics, namely, antennas of a new type and the semiconductor coherent transmit-receive device are developed by scientists and specialists of Ukraine.
Keywords: airport, coherent semiconductor transmit-receive device (transceiver), millimeter radiowaves, selection of moving targets
