The “Array Passive ISAR adaptive processing (APIS)” project has been conceived in the framework of the Defence R&T Joint Investment Programme on Innovative Concepts and Emerging Technologies (JIP-ICET) initiative promoted by the European Defence Agency (EDA).
The aim of the project is research, prototype development, testing and validation of an integrated system, mainly on the port side, in order to control and support maritime navigation in the last mile of type “all vessels, all weather, all-day” …
The project is devoted to the feasibility study of a pseudo-monostatic Over The Horizon (OTH) HF sky-wave radar for the surveillance of the Mediterranean area.
The physical principle of a HF OTH sky-wave radar is the ionospheric reflection. Specifically, the transmitted signal is progressively bended during the propagation through the ionospheric layers until it reflects back to the Earth’s surface.
PHODIR project focuses on the study, design and realization of a full digital transceiver radar demonstrator based on photonic technology both for signal generation and for RF received signal processing.
The objective of the project is to design and realize a multiband passive radar demonstrator based on a software-defined solution and oriented to coastal surveillance applications.
The AIM of this research program is the study and design of a multi-carrier transceiver based on electro-optic architectures for wideband wireless transmissions.
