Software-defined Radios for Radar and Spectrum Sen
at ORAU/ORISE DoD Programs

Date Posted: 11/24/2018

Opportunity Description

Software-defined Radios for Radar and Spectrum Sensing This research opportunity involves the exploration of distributed radar and spectrum sensing systems using commercial software-defined radios. Algorithms will be developed to enhance distributed radar detection and tracking performance, and wideband spectrum sensing data acquisition (I/Q) and visualization (real-time FFT) capabilities. The algorithms will be implemented on multiple computing architectures, including GPUs and FPGAs. Polarization signatures will be characterized, and polarization-based detection and tracking will be used to enhance radar performance. Data acquired by the systems will be analyzed and processed, and at least one peer-reviewed publication will result from this opportunity. Advisor: Dietlein, Charles R.

About Us

Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) administers Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research participation programs for civilians such as:

The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) Program that allow senior scientists, faculty; high school, bachelor’s, masters’ and doctoral students, and recent graduates to enhance their science education experience in projects and activities at our Department of Defense (DOD) and other Government and Private Industry customers’ laboratories and research facilities worldwide.

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) allow Postdoctoral Fellows, Journeyman Fellows (undergraduate and graduates students and recent graduates), Senior Researchers, and Summer Faculty engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. Scientists and engineers at ARL help shape and execute the Army's program for meeting the challenge of developing technologies that will support Army forces in meeting future operational needs.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: Aerospace Engineering, Anthropology, Archeology, Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Health Risk Assessment, Environmental Science, Entomology, Epidemiology, Ergonomics, Geology, Health Education Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematics, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Physics, Public Health Economics, Public Health Policy, and more.
