Award List:

Robust Wideband Aircraft Altitude Estimation for Over-the-Horizon HF Radar

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Granger Hickman, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Robust altitude estimation for over-the-horizon HF radar requires a combination of advanced signal processing and high fidelity ionospheric propagation modeling. Since aircraft height is manifested in closely-spaced direct and ground-bounce multipath reflections off the target, we propose two new… More

Robust Wideband Aircraft Altitude Estimation for Over-the-Horizon HF Radar

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Granger Hickman, Research Scientist
Award Amount: $730,814.00
Abstract:
Robust altitude estimation for over-the-horizon radar (OTHR) requires a combination of advanced signal processing and high fidelity ionospheric propagation modeling. Since aircraft height is manifested in closely-spaced direct and ground-bounce reflections off the target, during Phase I, we have… More

Simultaneous Tracking and Ionospheric Model Estimation for NG OTHR

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Michael Papazoglou, Senior Scientist – (919) 294-6835
Award Amount: $99,999.00
Abstract:
Robust target tracking and accurate geo-location for over-the-horizon radar (OTHR) are currently limited by clutter-contamination of signal returns and uncertainty in the multi-mode mapping from radar to ground coordinates. In this proposal, we address both these challenges by developing methods… More
