SkyRadar Systems launch success at Staffordshire University

On Saturday, Feb. 08, 2014, SkyRadar successfully commissioned its new radar training system on site at Staffordshire University. The configuration was designed to satisfy academic teaching as well as research requirements. In teaching, as well as in research, Staffordshire University addresses university students as well as industrial and military experts.

The university needed to satisfy several criteria:

a)      The measured data needs to be highly accurate and free from clutter.

b)      Given the high quantity of concurrent users in practical academic seminars and in industry / military teaching programs, the university needed a system that cope with multiple access. In addition they needed to allow students to continue with experiments based on recorded data outside the laboratory scheduling.

c)       A strong academic research focus requires an open architecture, ideally prepared interfaces to numerical research environments like MATLAB.

SkyRadar’s radar training system excelled in all perspectives. SkyRadar’s R&D director Eric Moskwa was delighted. “I am happy that the system was received with such enthusiasm. In Staffordshire, we deployed a completely reworked SkyRadar Scope software. The interfaces to MATLAB were enhanced, and some hardware features improved. Although we tested the system intensely, we are always nervous when a reworked system is launched. A wholeheartedly positive reaction such as we received from Staffordshire University, is the best feedback, you can get …”  As of today, research on the system is operational. We look forward to regularly communicating on research progress and publications by the Staffordshire team.
