About the Project

MSc by Research

The project investigates cutting-edge solutions in the area of RF electronic warfare, with emphasis on false targets generation techniques to deceive hostile radar systems.

You will develop a measurement setup consisting of automatically controlled turntables to allow RCS measurements over 360 degrees in both azimuth and elevation. The setup will consist of a 2-port Vector Network Analyzer (VNA), currently available at Cranfield University, capable of collecting RCS measurements up to frequencies of 40 GHz with the use of LabView and MATLAB. You will process and analyse the data using Matlab and report the results to our customer.

Cranfield Defence and Security (CDS) provide unique educational opportunities to the Defence and security sectors of both public and private sector organizations. Based at the UK Defence Academy at Shrivenham in Oxfordshire, CDS is the academic provider to the UK Ministry of Defence for postgraduate education at the Defence Academy, training in engineering, science, acquisition, management and leadership

As part of the opportunity, you will work on a cutting-edge research project which is expected to deliver high impact results.

You will have the ability to work closely with our industrial partners and to travel for meetings and to a conference to present your results.

After completing the Master’s, you will have gained strong independent thinking and research skills, both theoretical and experimental. A number of writing courses are available which will assist in report, scientific paper, presentation and thesis writing. You will gain experience in presenting work at workshops and conferences, and also in programming and signal processing. All of these are transferable skills enhancing employability
