Portable Radar for through-wall human surveillance
Law enforcement, security and surveillance operations and search and rescue missions occur in different paradigms such as urban areas, in forests, during night, and in severe weather conditions. In these
scenarios, reliable real time situational awareness assumes great importance for the enforcement personnel. Over the last decade, both Ultrawideband (UWB) and Doppler based radar techniques have been
researched and developed for detecting humans in non-line-of-sight environments. However these sensors are usually of high power and are large and cumbersome and not truly portable.
My research focuses on finding potential solutions to make truly lightweight and portable radars for sensing humans in non line-of-sight environments.
