Phased Array Beam Controller Out Now!

Part #: SkyRadar Phased Array Beam Controller-Ver.5.0 The peak of an antenna diagram of an antenna may vary from the geometric middle line. This effect is observed particularly in array antennas: even small deviations of the lengths of the supply cables produce phase differences, which impact during the aggregation of the individual radiators and cause […]

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 […]

FOURIER TRANSFORM METHODS IN GEOPHYSICS

  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; […]

FMCW Phased Array Radar for Automatically Triggered Measurements of Snow Avalanches

By Brennan et al. In the abstract, Brennan et al. write: “Radar has emerged as a means of measuring avalanche dynamics for validating models to predict avalanche behaviour for improved calculation of risk zones. However, current radar measurements do not provide a true representation of an entire avalanche flow. An FMCW, multi-chirp, 8 receiver channel […]

Wireless Remote Sensing Based on RADAR Cross Section Variability Measurement of Passive Electromagnetic Sensors

By Aubert et al. Aubert et al. research “the wireless measurement of various physical quantities from the analysis of the RADAR Cross Sections variability of passive electromagnetic sensors.” The authors use a millimeter-wave FMCW radar for both remote sensing and wireless identification of sensors. Published at : 7th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EUCAP […]

BISTATIC RADAR OBSERVATIONS OF THE MOON

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 […]

GPR Radar: Detection of Land Mines – Media Overview

GPR Radar: Detection of Land Mines – Media Overview “Antipersonnel mines and cluster munitions are indiscriminate weapons that injure and kill civilians in every corner of the globe, every day. They don’t recognize ceasefires and claim victims long after the end of conflicts. They instill fear in communities and are a lethal barrier to development. […]
