Forward Scattering Radar: Theory, applications, and future directions

June 21, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Dear IEEE members and guests, The next IEEE Control, Aerospace and Electronic Systems (CAES) seminar will be on Wednesday, 21/06/2023 at 06:00 pm (Adelaide time). The speaker is Dr Raja Abdullah, he will be presenting a seminar on: Forward Scattering Radar: Theory, applications, and future directions This is a hybrid seminar you can join us in person at the University of Adelaide or via Zoom Also, please check out the IEEE SA Section website: https://r10.ieee.org/saus/ Regards Leigh Powis IEEE SA CAES Chapter Chair Forward Scattering Radar: Theory, applications, and future directions Forward Scattering Radar (FSR) is a special mode of bistatic radar in which the desired radar signal is formed via the shadowing of the direct signal by the target body. The signal received at the FSR receiver can be used for target detection, tracking, classification, recognition and imaging. FSR offers several salient features such as relatively simple hardware, enhanced target radar cross section, long coherent interval of the receiving signal and possible operation using non-cooperative transmitters. In this talk, I will briefly explain the theory of FSR, and discuss the receiver technique, signal processing, wave propagation as well as radar cross section characteristics. This is followed with the highlights of the advantages and current limitations of this technique. Then I will share notable research progress and case studies that demonstrate the feasibility of FSR in emerging applications. I will also highlight the current development of automatic target detection and classification, clutter profile analysis and the integration of machine learning in FSR. Despite many distinct advantages of FSR and enormous applications that have been tested to unlock the capability of FSR, however, there is a lack of commercial radar systems based on FSR and its potential impact. Thus, I will present potential solutions and recommendations to traditional FSR systems, so that industry players will consider incorporating FSR into their product pipelines. Finally, I will conclude this talk by sharing some future directions.
