Multistatic Radar – UCL Development of NetRAD and NeXtRAD Sensor Systems"

MACSI at the department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Limerick invites you to a seminar

Date               Wednesday 28th November 2018, (Note: Unusual Day!)

Room:            A2-002

Time:              4p.m.

Speaker:        Dr Matt Ritchie (Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, UCL, UK).

Title:               "Multistatic Radar – UCL Development of NetRAD and NeXtRAD Sensor Systems"

Abstract: This talk will review the experimental radar measurements taken with the NetRAD and NeXtRAD multistatic radar sensor networks. The UCL radar research group has been able to develop and deploy real multistatic sensors to measure targets such as the sea, boats, people, drones and birds. The aim of these measurements is to understand the signatures of the targets and clutter background to improve detection and classification in a multistatic network. This talk will aim to summarise the findings from these measurements campaigns and discuss the challenges when developing multistatic radar sensors and look to where applied mathematical methods can help improve the usage of real multistatic radars.
