Radar technology

Contact: Fran├žois Le Chevalier

Radar system as a combination of modern electronic technology with radar signal processing algorithms
The research in this theme includes wide spectrum topics:
  • Advanced Space-Time Adaptive Processing (STAP) using polarimetric, Doppler, micro-Doppler, mono-static and bi-static characteristics of targets and clutter.
  • Design orthogonal radar waveforms and optimal processing algorithms for colered space transmission, instant polarimetry and distributed MIMO radar systems and networks.
  • State of the art digital technology for Reconfigurable Radar Systems and complex algorithm for signal processing and system management;
  • Advanced technology and processing algorithms for Synthetic Aperture (SAR), Inverse SAR (ISAR), and Imaging Radars
