About the presentation
Pulse pattern design 'on the fly' is integral to the intelligent management of a radars activity. What is meant by optimum pulse pattern design and how it may be achieved are discussed. Practical means of determining optimum pulse patterns are described and the mathematical function required for the accurate derivation of probability of detection for a Swerling one target seen with a frequency diverse radar using many multi pulse bursts at any specific range rate is given.
About the speaker
Dr. Derek Geoffrey Finch obtained an upper second class honours degree in 1975 from Imperial College of science and technology (university of London) in physics and in 1981 a PhD from Bristol university for research into the possibility of detection of high frequency gravitational radiation. In this time he spent 3 years as a research fellow at Bristol studying acoustic gravitational radiation detectors. In 1982 he joined AMEECO (hydrospace) working in the development of sonar and other underwater sensor systems. In 1984 he became an independent consultant in sensor and systems development until 1989 when he joined what was then Siemens Plessey radar and is now BAE SYSTEMS on the Isle of Wight . Derek is a Member of the Institute of Physics and a Chartered physicist he is married with two sons.
