This report describes the design concept of a radar speed meter used for vehicle speed regulation by police, a study of antenna directivity, speed observational coefficients, and cruising direction finding function. An outline of the developed equipment and its main functions are illustrated. The speed observational coefficient is 1 to 0.985, considering various methods of installation and cruising modes, so observed speed never exceeds actual vehicle speed. It is determined that practical maximum reflective power from static targets do not change the speed measurement functions or direction-finding functions. Illustrations, diagrams, and graphs include English captions.
