Monday, 24. June 2019 until Wednesday, 26. June 2019 09:00 - 17:30

Tactical missiles can strike and intercept targets on land, in the air and at sea.

NATO needs to maintain a capability edge over potential adversaries with new and upgraded missile systems.

Concept definition is the first step towards a new missile system. Mission requirements will determine the size and performance of a system. Both are strongly related to the type and size of the propulsion sub-system.

Currently, to perform conceptual design, military users, procurement agencies and defense contractors in NATO nations use individual proprietary models and different data bases. This leads to non-consistent results and is hindering collaboration.

This is the registration for the second host location Stavanger. This Technical Course will also be held at the following three other locations:

4 - 6 June 2019 - Oberammergau, DEU 10 – 12 September 2019 - German Aerospace Center (DLR), Washington D.C., USA 17 – 19 September 2019 - Lancaster University Center Lancaster, CA, USA

Theme

Compressive sensing (CS) is a novel acquisition and processing technique that enables reconstruction of sparse signals from a set of non-adaptive measurements sampled at a much lower rate than required by the Nyquist-Shannon sampling theorem as pertaining to the full signal bandwidth. In particular, compressive sensing exploits the fact that the information bandwidth of the signal is much smaller than the full signal bandwidth.

For radar and ESM sensors, the use of CS may lead to several benefits, such as significant hardware reductions in ESM receivers, unambiguous signal recovery from incomplete measurements (filling in missing data) in interleaved radar modes (SAR/GMTI, multi-function radars) and sparse arrays, high resolution imaging with significantly less data and/or hardware.

The main objective of this Research Lecture Series is to present the fundamentals and the cutting edge of CS techniques for a number of radar and ESM applications, with an outlook to expected future developments and hardware implications of CS based architectures.

Topics to be covered:

  • Introduction and overview of CS applied to radar.
  • Introduction and application of CS for Electronic Support Measures (ESM).
  • Introduction and application of CS to Inverse SAR.
  • Hardware architectures for compressive sensing.
  • Application of CS to 2D/3D SAR.
  • Applications of convex optimization to GMTI.
