Software-defined Radios for Radar and Spectrum Sen
at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 4/24/2019

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

Grooming future leaders in science and technology requires enhancing the skills, knowledge and experience of workers early in their careers. To that end, ORAU (Oak Ridge Associated Universities) assists in connecting the best and most diverse students, recent graduates, faculty and professionals with world-class fellowships, internships and jobs, whether in national laboratories, research institutions, federal government offices or private sector R&D departments.

ORAU works with agencies such as 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. We work with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to place recent graduates in full-time and part-time jobs in the Office of Research and Development at EPA under the National Student Services Contract. ORAU also works with Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation.

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, Data Science, 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, Toxicology, and more.

If you are ready to take the next step in your career path, then we are ready to help you!
