Land clutter modelling and target detection for Airborne Passive Radar

September 26, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Dear IEEE members and guests, The next IEEE Control, Aerospace and Electronic Systems (CAES) seminar will be on Monday, 26th September, 2022 at 7:30 pm (Adelaide time). The speaker is Dr Vichet Duk, he will be presenting a seminar on: Land clutter modelling and target detection for Airborne Passive Radar Please aim to join the WebEx meeting beforehand, so we can start on time. https://ieeemeetings.webex.com/ieeemeetings/j.php?MTID=m7d78e421c5c53e40aef3a7b82d079e84 Webinar number (access code): 2539 661 7771 Also, please check out the IEEE SA Section website: https://r10.ieee.org/saus/ Regards Waddah Al-Ashwal IEEE SA CAES Chapter Chair Land clutter modelling and target detection for Airborne Passive Radar Passive operation is an important operational concept for future airborne radar platforms. There are challenges with detection of land targets from an airborne platform due to platform motion which causes the clutter Doppler to spread and can mask targets of interest. Successfully target detection requires an understanding of the underlying clutter statistics in order to set the detection threshold accurately. In addition, clutter statistics are important for modelling of passive radar performance and simulation of passive bistatic radar to aid in the development of new target detection algorithms. In this seminar, the clutter statistics of data from an airborne platform are studied over a range of bistatic geometries and receive polarisations. The seminar will also demonstrate the application of a sparse signal separation algorithm known as morphological component analysis and evaluate its ability to separate targets from clutter scenes which are wide in Doppler. The illuminator is a digital video broadcast-terrestrial (DVB-T) station and the collected data spans both ground and maritime regions. The seminar will also include a brief introduction on the topic of the machine learning application for radar warning receiver, an interest undertaken at SRC AUS Pty Ltd. Discussion and suggestions on the topic are welcome. Speaker(s): Dr Vichet Duk, Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/322597
