    The stepped-frequency radar signal is revisited. The delay-Doppler response of pulse-trains with different interpulse frequency codings is investigated, including linear, nonlinear, up-down and Costas codings. Different approaches to sidelobe reduction are considered. Both matched filter and stretch processing are discussed. View full abstract»

  • New model for estimating the thickness and permittivity of subsurface layers from GPR data

    A new mathematical model for estimating the depth and permittivity of subsurface layers from measured ground-penetrating radar (GPR) data is presented. The new model considers the effects from the air-ground interface and introduces a ray-path-searching process in the depth calculation. It includes the conventional model as a special case. The experimental results agree well with the new model. View full abstract»

    The authors devise a new data fusion technique for classification that exploits the information contained in single-channel SAR and optical images optimally. In fact, even though good classification performance can be achieved by using multiple optical channels, it is shown that classification results from a single optical channel are not appreciably better than those obtained with a single SAR im...

    The electromagnetic consequences of placing a dielectric coating at the edge of a conducting plane are discussed. An empirically based coating design strategy is formulated that uses asymptotic RCS data and surface wave attenuation data to determine those properties of the coating that will effect a reduction in monostatic RCS at obtuse incidence angles and H-polarisation (magnetic field polarised...

    The explosion of growth seen in the mobile telephony market has meant that the electronic components used in the manufacture of mobile terminals are now mass produced, with a commensurate fall in unit cost. By exploiting the functionality of such components in phased array antenna design a truly low-cost phased array antenna can be realised. An array antenna architecture is presented that exploits...

    The paper describes an algorithm to jointly form a track and assign an identity flag to a target on the basis of measurements provided by a suite of sensors: surveillance radar, high resolution radar and electronic support measures. The algorithm is built around Bayes' inference and Kalman filters with the interacting multiple model. The improved performance in the track formation and identity est... View full abstract»
