RADAR/TELECOMS EXPERIMENTAL LAB

RADAR_TELECOMS_EXPERIMENTAL_LAB_photo1RADAR_TELECOMS_EXPERIMENTAL_LAB_photo3

Main activities:

-   Study, design and development of processing techniques for SAR system definition, SAR & ISAR high resolution focusing, SAR image information extraction, GMTI and multi-channel SAR, adaptive array radar, adaptive detectors for high resolution clutter echoes, advanced radar tracking

-   Study, design and development of experimental passive radar demonstrators, based on different waveforms of opportunity (e.g. FM radio, DVB, WiFi and GPS). The experimental passive radar receivers are realized with COTS components and are designed to be effective in various applications, ranging from air traffic control, to maritime surveillance, to road traffic monitoring, up to indoor location. Proper processing techniques are developed and tested to detect, localize, track and possibly classify targets moving in the surveyed scene by means of the conceived passive radar receivers.
