This paper presents the design of a multi-channel reconfigurable front-end architecture for a waveform-agile radar. At first the purpose of the design is explained following the status of research on software-defined radar at MTSR. A description of the proposed system architecture is given with details on sub-systems implementation. Then some preliminary results obtained on a prototype of the platform are shown. Finally, further developments on this system architecture are described, highlighting how this platform can support research on software-defined multi-channel radar systems.
