Opportunity Description

RF Sensors for Concealed and Low Signature Target Detection This research project will focus on the concealed target detection challenge using radar and other RF sensors. Targets of interest include landmines and improvised explosive devices (IED), which typically are concealed or have low radar cross section . Research will involve design, development, and experimentation of prototype systems and sub-systems in areas relating to non-linear and ultra-wideband radar technologies including high sensitivity and low noise RF receivers, super-heterodyne stepped frequency radar architectures, harmonic radar, filters, diplexers, RF digitizers, and amplifiers. Technical competence in electronic design software is desired including: Matlab, LabVIEW, ADS, and SystemVue. Advisor: Sullivan, Ander J. [Click Here To Join]; 301-394-0838)
