RF Sensing Systems (SENSYS) Group

Radar systems play an essential role in all-weather, day-night sensing. They are used to detect, locate, track, image, and identify objects, as well as quantify changes in around them over time.

Radar systems come in many forms – from compact radar systems on autonomous platforms to orbital radar payloads, and for a suite of applications, from remote sensing to security and defence.

The primary focus of the SENSYS group is research on innovative radar system and signal processing concepts that span the gamut of radar techniques and applications. Our end goals are to increase radar sensor information space and push radar performance beyond the state of the art, and to demonstrate these capabilities through experimental systems we design, build and test.

To achieve these goals we are driven by the latest trends in radar technology, including distributed, intelligent and cognitive sensing, and leverage the latest advances in physical and computational sciences, including Quantum Technologies and Artificial Intelligence.
