In this thesis I explore radio detection and ranging (RADAR) and software defined radio (SDR) in the context of wireless passive sensor interrogation. A RADAR topology is selected based upon preliminary measurements using ordinary laboratory instrumentation and then used for construction of a prototype X-band wireless measurement system using commercial, off-theshelf (COTS) components. This research explores the feasibility of wireless passive sensor interrogation through practical application of SDR and RADAR techniques to the interrogation of a wireless passive resonator signal. This work serves as a foundation for further research on sensor interrogation through establishment of critical system parameters in the design of wireless measurement systems.
