Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) technique is obtained significant attention in radar applications for its interference resilience property. In this paper, Fractional Fourier Transformation (FRFT) and phase analysis techniques are proposed to enhance ranging accuracy of an OFDM Radar. A proof-of-concept radar is built and tested at 79 GHz and a range accuracy of 20 m at 5 MHz measurement rate was measured. The range accuracy is 500 times higher than using fast Fourier transformation (FFT) method.
