Remote Intelligence of Building Interiors (RIBI) Using Radar
1 of 2 projects - http://www.findaphd.com/search/ProjectDetails.aspx?PJID=71933
Applications are invited for two 3-year fully-funded PhD studentships, available immediately.
The work will develop and de-risk low frequency radar techniques for sensing the interiors of buildings; to determine their internal structures, detect the presence of equipment, and detect human activity. Radar techniques have previously been developed for monitoring and surveillance of building interiors, but these are applicable only when in close proximity. This study will instead look at development of new capabilities for the Remote Intelligence of Building Interiors (RIBI) project, using stand-off platforms. The study will be based around extensive experimental laboratory measurements to be conducted with Cranfield’s Ground-Based Synthetic Aperture Radar (GB-SAR) Microwave Measurement Facility, and development and validation of signal processing schemes. Students will work closely with our UK and international partners.
Entry Requirements -
Candidates should hold a first/upper-second class degree or a masters (MSc/MRes) in a relevant science subject. The PhD is aimed at UK/EU students, although exceptional overseas students may be considered. Good interpersonal and communication (oral and written in English) skills are required, as is an ability to work independently.
Students will be based at Cranfield’s Shrivenham Campus in Oxfordshire within the School of Cranfield Defence and Security.
Applicants are eligible for an annual bursary of around £15,000.
