Indoor radar acoustic sounding a a new modality navigation sensor

Radar acoustic sounding systems (RASS) generate short acoustic pulses that are tracked by a colocated Doppler radar. They rely on the focussing effect of the expanding acoustic puls more...

High frequency radar acoustic sounding for detection of air turbulence

Tracking an acoustic pulse relies on well behaved air flow, hence the short range RASS could be used to identify turbulence in front of UAVs and other relatively slow moving aerial more...

3D millimetre wave radar imaging using a low cost plasma display

It has long been known that Glow Discharge Detectors (GDDs or neon bulbs) are able to detect microwave, millimetre wave and even THz radiation. Recent work has also showed that in a more...
