PhD thesis (Apr 2020): Reconfigurable Range-Doppler Processing and Interference Mitigation for FMCW Radars
Promotor: Alexander Yarovoy, Oleg Krasnov

Themes: Radar for Remote Sensing and Targets Characterization, Radar technology


Sharef Neemat received his M.Sc. in electrical engineering from the University of Cape Town (UCT), South Africa in 2010. His study focused on Secondary Surveillance Radar (SSR) Identification Friend or Foe (IFF). The Masters project output was the design and implementation of a digital real-time target emulator for SSR/IFF.

Before and after receiving his M.Sc, Mr. Neemat was involved in Airborne Radios in the form of design, development and test of Digital Signal Processor (DSP) drivers and application layer SW for radio housekeeping, scheduling and Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) interfaces. The DSP designs and code were developed to comply with DO-178B level C (Software Considerations in Airborne Systems and Equipment Certification) and MISRA (Motor Industry Software Reliability Association C standard). He was furthermore responsible for system engineering/project management of Asset Tracking Systems development. The work had involved writing system engineering management plans and requirements documentation for systems and their sub-systems, complying with MIL-STD-490 and MIL-STD-491.

In December 2014, Mr. Neemat joined the Microwave Sensing, Signals and Systems (MS3) group at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and has started working towards his PhD. Currently his research topic is "Real-time reconfigurable digital receiver for waveform agile radar". The research goal is to develop a digital receiver architecture and its real-time FPGA/DSP-based implementation that provides the capability to select the optimal waveform for current mission/radar scene and its processing algorithms.
