The history of radar has often been told by the nations who used it to win World War II (WWII). History books often stated that radar won the war for the Allies. This is probably an overstatement, as both sides used radar. Research on radar started in eight nations well before WWII: France, Germany, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The first evidence of the radar principle sprung from wireless technology as early as 1897, when Alexander… Expand

Ultra-Wide Band Software Defined Pulse-Doppler Radar For Presence Detection
TLDR
The pulse-Doppler radar designed for this project is demonstrated to detect a single moving target and measure its speed and distance relative to the radar in real time using software defined radar. Expand
SAR imaging with a hand-held UWB radar system
Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems are used extensively for imaging vast areas using electromagnetic radiation. Radar systems have the benefit of being able to image areas which optical lightExpand
GPS/GSM based low altitude rotary wing aircraft tracking system
Radar and radio cannot pickup the low flying aircraft due to the limitation of radar horizon, which severely poses flight hazards. As such, tracking of the low altitude aircraft in real-time is aExpand
IR-UWB Pulse Generation Using FPGA Scheme for through Obstacle Human Detection
TLDR
The novelty of this research lies in the use of the FPGA scheme to achieve an IR-UWB pulse with a 2.073 GHz (117 MHz–2.19 GHz) bandwidth, thereby rendering the technology suitable for a wide range of applications, in addition to through-obstacle detection. Expand
Smartphone based flying object reporting system
TLDR
A smartphone based flying object reporting system that uses the GSM network and GPS of the phone that will allow the observer to recognize flying objects from the pictures and drastically reduce reporting time which will enhance the overall detection system and better preparation against enemy.
