Fully Funded DSTL-EPSRC PhD Research Studentship
Advanced High Resolution Methods for Radar Imaging and Micro-Doppler Signature Extraction
Principal supervisor: Professor John Soraghan, Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering
Other supervisors: Dr Ian Glover, Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Dr Des McGhee, Department of Mathematics, University of Strathclyde
A fully funded DSTL-EPSRC peered reviewed 3.5 year PhD research studentship (home fees + stipend up to £17.5k per year) is available from 1st October 2009 to work in the Centre for excellence in Signal and Image Processing (CeSIP), University of Strathclyde.
The increasing interest in bistatic and multistatic radar systems is a result of the potential they offer in sectors such as remote sensing, navigation, automatic target recognition, and related defence and commercial applications. Advantages of multistatic approaches over conventional monostatic systems include (i) the ability to operate in a covert mode (whereby the receiver may be passive with a relatively close stand off distance to the operational region compared to the transmitter), and (ii) increased survivability employing independent receiver manoeuvring with a reduced receiver cost that incorporate inexpensive passive receive only systems.
