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.

Thursday, 14. March 2019 until Friday, 15. March 2019 08:30 - 17:00

The 2019 Ramstein Aerospace Medicine Summit (RAMS) and NATO Science and Technology Organization (STO) Technical Course will be held 18-21 March 2019 in Garmisch Partenkirchen Germany. The event will start at 0800 hours, 18 Mar 2019, and end at approximately 1630 hours, 21 Mar 2019.

The Course Director for the RAMS portion is Lt Col (Dr) Geoffrey Ewing, US Air Forces in Europe-US Air Forces Africa, Aerospace Medicine Division Chief. The Course Director for the NATO STO Technical Course portion is Lt Col (Dr) Richard Hannah, Air Division Surgeon, 1 Canadian Air Division HQ, Canadian Armed Forces.

Note: 

The General Information Letter, with details about the venue, travelling, etc... will be available on this site once the CSO validates your enrolment.

It is called GIP - RAMS 2019 . pdf and you can find it just below the google maps picture on the right side of this text when you enter this page after you received the validation.

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 Technical Course will also take place at the following dates and locations:

27 – 29 August 2019 - NATO Joint Warfare Center, Stavanger, NOR 10 – 12 September 2019 - German Aerospace Center (DLR), Washington D.C., USA 17 – 19 September 2019 - Lancaster University Center Lancaster, CA, USA

04 - 06 June 2019 - NATO School Oberammergau, Oberammergau, DEU

27 – 29 August 2019 - NATO Joint Warfare Center, Stavanger, NOR

10 – 12 September 2019 - German Aerospace Center (DLR), Washington D.C., USA
