SkyRadar Modular Radar Training System 5.0 Out Now

Today SkyRadar launched its new release of its modular radar training system. The team of experts completely reworked the previous version. The first major innovation is that the software FreeScopes is now based on HTML 5 technologies such as JavaScript and Canvas. The communication between GUI and the radar system can work either directly via […]

  David Sandwell introduces into the use of Fourier transform in geophysics such as image processing,time series analysis, and antenna design. He focusses “on the use of fourier transforms for solving linear partial differential equations (PDE). Some examples include: Poisson’s equation for problems in gravity and magnetics; the biharmonic equation for problems in linear visco-elasticity; […]

BISTATIC RADAR OBSERVATIONS OF THE MOON USING THE ARECIBO OBSERVATORY & MINI-RF ON LRO By Bussey et al. NASA successfully used a bistatic ground radar to measure the moon’s surface. “The bistatic angle is determined by the positions and orientations of the radar transmitter and receiver. […] NASA’s Mini-RF instrument on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter […]

Multi-target detection algorithm for FMCW radar

by Hyun et al. The authors conduct research on multi-target detection algorithms. In their abstract, they state that “FMCW (Frequency Modulation Continuous Wave) radar has been a popular method for automotive applications. The typical FMCW radar, however, has serious problems in multi-target situations. That is, range-velocity processing gives rise to so-called ghost targets due to […]

Radar-Based Detection and Identification for Miniature Air Vehicles

In their paper “Radar-Based Detection and Identification for Miniature Air Vehicles” Moses et al. give valuable insight into the detection and identification of drones through an x-band radar. Here the abstract: “It is claimed that Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) used for civilian/public domain applications will be dominant in the near future. Compared to UAVs used […]
