We propose and demonstrate a novel approach to increase the effective bandwidth of a frequencymodulated continuous-wave (FMCW) ranging system. This is achieved by algorithmically stitching together the swept spectra of separate laser sources. The result is an improvement in the range resolution proportional to the increase in the swept-frequency range. An analysis of this system as well as the outline of the stitching algorithm are presented. Using three distinct swept-frequency optical waveforms, we experimentally demonstrate a threefold improvement in the range resolution of a three-sweep approach over the conventional FMCW method.
