The Microwave Sensing, Signals and Systems (MS3) group educates students and performs theoretical and experimental research on fundamental and applied aspects of microwave systems for surveillance and remote sensing. Using electromagnetics as the foundation, the group focuses its research on sensing waveforms and signal processing, antenna systems with near- and far-field focusing capabilities and radar resource management. Applications include area surveillance for safety and security applications, weather radar, ground-penetrating radar, automotive and traffic control applications and medical imaging.
The group includes the Radar Labs which consist of multi-sensor facilities on the roof of the EEMCS building, most importantly the fully reconfigurable polarimetric wideband radars PARSAX and MESEWI, the located at Cabauw radar facilities TARA and IDRA, and the antenna measurement chamber DUCAT. The labs include also a distributed radar system for the surveillance of the lower airspace (RAEBELL), a millimetre-wave and UWB indoor laboratory, a multichannel transmission MIMO Radar, and a ground penetrating radar measurement site. This infrastructure is leading in Europe.
The MS3 group is involved in the following tracks in the MSc program on Electrical Engineering:MSc Wireless Communication and Sensing, MSc Signals and Systems.
Welcome to the new academic year!
PARSAX radar measures the drone at the distance of 8 km
On February 7, 2018 the Microwave Sensing, Signals and Systems (MS3) group
run small measurement campaign to validate the ability the PARSAX S-band
radar to measure polarimetric micro-Doppler characteristics of small UAV/drones.
The drone was flying at the height 100 m, 8 km away from the radar.
The video shows the detail structure of micro-Doppler signals from rotating
drone's blades with good signal to noise ratio. Such measurements can provide
an important input and support for the development of drones detection and
classification algorithms for security and safety applications.

Our Radars in Real-Time
RainGuRU , AI-based rainfall nowcaster
RainGuRU is an AI-based rainfall nowcaster for The Netherlands. It predict rainfall intensities up to 100 minutes ahead based on real-time radar data provided by the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI)
Convergence Open Mind Grant for ME Department
Francesco Fioranelli, Assistant Professor at the MS3 group, has received an Open Mind Grant as part of the Convergence Initiative between TU Delft, Erasmus MC and Erasmus University. The co-applicants were Caitlin Ramsey, PhD candidate at Erasmus MC (and former alumna of this department), and Lytske Bakker, PhD candidate at Erasmus University Rotterdam.
Where are they now? Marc Vizcarro i Carretero
Master students come and go... after an intensive period working in the group, they return home, find a job, or have other opportunities they take. We don’t always know where they go, how they are, and how they experienced their time at TU Delft. We asked Marc Vizcarro i Carretero, a Masterstudent who graduated on the 13 day of August 2019, to share his story...
