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(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)
—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)
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)
