System aspects of an anti-intruder multistatic radar based on impulse radio ultrawideband (UWB) technology are addressed. The investigated system is composed of one transmitting node and at least three receiving nodes, positioned in the surveillance area with the aim of detecting and locating a human intruder (target) that moves inside the area. Such(More)
This paper proposes an investigation of propagation behaviour of Ultra–Wide Bandwidth (UWB) signals in outdoor environments. Specifically, we first report on the results of an extensive measurement campaign that we have carried out in three selected scenarios, namely “forest”, “hilly” and “sub– urban” environments. Then, we present the statistical model(More)
This paper reports on extensive experimental activities and related modelling for the characterization of the ultra-wide bandwidth (UWB) channel in a typical "sub-urban" environment. We first present the experimental setup and describe the methodology-used for channel sounding. Then, statistical models are presented, as derived after post-processing of(More)
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are gaining increasing interest thanks to their flexibility and versatility. However, these systems are very complex and a good simulation platform is needed. In this paper, a new Framework for simulation and fast prototyping of UAV control laws is presented. The Framework exploits the high realism of the simulations carried(More)
A radar sensor network (RSN) is a wireless network system, typically composed of one transmitting (TX) node and several receiving (RX) nodes, aimed at detecting and tracking an intruder (target) moving within a given surveillance area. In this paper, RSNs based on impulse radio ultra-wideband (UWB) are investigated. In the considered system, at each(More)
In this paper, we describe the results of a measurement campaign in Ultra-Wide Bandwidth (UWB) indoor channel and specifically this investigation is carried out in a typical open office environment. We have sounded the channel in the time domain, with a probing signal at a carrier frequency of 4.5 GHz modulated by a train of Gaussian monocycle pulses having(More)
Knowing exactly where a mobile entity is and monitoring its trajectory in real-time has recently attracted a lot of interests from both academia and industrial communities, due to the large number of applications it enables, nevertheless, it is nowadays one of the most challenging problems from scientific and technological standpoints. In this work we(More)
