  1. 1. Millimeter-Wave Radar for Low-Power Applications

    Author : Sebastian Heunisch; Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Gesture Recognition; Material Characterization; Radar; Reflectrometry; Resonant-Tunnelling Diode; Wavelet Generator; Wideband Millimeter-Wave Circuits;

    Abstract : Radar technology has developed rapidly during the last century. Besides its initial use for military, it is nowadays also applied for many civil applications. Improvements in circuit technology make integrated radar sensors possible, allowing a significant reduction of the production cost. READ MORE

  2. 2. Signal Processing for Radar with Array Antennas and for Radar with Micro-Doppler Measurements

    Author : Svante Björklund; Mats Pettersson; Ingvar Claesson; Ulrich Nickel; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; radar; signal processing; array antenna; subarray; clutter; jamming; interference; direction of arrival estimation; security; micro-Doppler; feature extraction; classification;

    Abstract : Radar (RAdio Detection And Ranging) uses radio waves to detect the presence of a target and measure its position and other properties. This sensor has found many civilian and military applications due to advantages such as possible large surveillance areas and operation day and night and in all weather. READ MORE

  3. 3. High-resolution meteor exploration with tristatic radar methods

    Author : Johan Kero; Asta Pellinen-Wannberg; Sigrid Close; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; meteors; meteoroids; interplanetary dust; radar; head echoes; ablation; meteoroid fragmentation; radar; huvudekon; ablation; meteorisk fragmentation; meteorer; meteoroider; interplanetärt stoft; Space engineering; Rymdteknik;

    Abstract : A meteor observed with the naked eye is colloquially called a shooting star. The streak of light is generated by an extra-terrestrial particle, a meteoroid, entering the Earth’s atmosphere. The term meteor includes both luminosity detectable by optical means and ionization detectable by radar. READ MORE

  4. 4. Estimation Problems in Array Signal Processing, System Identification, and Radar Imagery

    Author : Richard Abrahamsson; Peter Stoica; A. Lee Swindlehurst; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Parameter Estimation; Array Signal Processing; STAP; SAR; Ground Penetrating Radar; System Identification; Bilinear Models; Covariance Matrix Estimation; Signal processing; Signalbehandling; Signal Processing; Signalbehandling;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with parameter estimation, signal processing, and applications. In the first part, imaging using radar is considered. More specifically, two methods are presented for estimation and removal of ground-surface reflections in ground penetrating radar which otherwise hinder reliable detection of shallowly buried landmines.

  5. 5. Analysis of Resistor-Loaded Bow-Tie Antennas for Ground Penetrating Radar Applications

    Author : Disala Uduwawala; KTH; []
    Keywords : Ground penetrating radar; Buried object detection; Simulation; Radar antennas; Radar signal processing; FDTD methods; Optimal design; Lossy media; Dispersive media; Clutter; Polarization;

    Abstract : Ground penetrating radar (GPR) systems are increasinglybeing used for the detection and location of buried objectswithin the upper regions of the earth's surface. Numericalsimulation of such systems plays an important role in thedevelopment of GPR hardware and signal processingtechniques. READ MORE
