Dr Antoniou leads a team of research staff and researchers specialising in RF sensors and signal processing.

He has more than 80 publications in this field in peer-reviewed journals and international conferences. He has led research funded by DSTL, H2020, ESA, EPSRC and The British Council, as well as industry.

His research interests include Synthetic Aperture Radar, bi-/multi-static and MIMO radar, passive radar and cognitive/"bio-inspired radar".

Qualifications

  • Associate Fellow of the HEA, 2013
  • PhD in Radar Systems, University of Birmingham, 2007
  • BEng (Hons) in Electrical and Communications Engineering, University of Birmingham, 2003

Teaching

  • EE2D2 - Fundamentals of Communications Systems (2nd Year)
  • EE3B1 - Analogue Electronics (3rd Year)

Postgraduate supervision

Michail Antoniou’s research interests include bi- and multi-static radar systems, passive radar, imaging radar, and radar signal processing. He has carried out research and development of a compact Forward Scattering Radar (FSR) network for situational awareness in ground operations. He developed and tested the system prototype for a passive imaging radar using the Galileo satellites as transmitters and an airborne receiver. He has also conducted research on engineering infrastructure monitoring using passive radar systems.

Dr Antoniou is happy to supervise doctoral research in any of these areas. Examples of doctoral projects that he has supervised include:

Development of a passive bistatic imaging radar with Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) as transmitters and a fixed receiver
Coherent change detection using passive bistatic radar imagery

Other activities

  • Member of NATO SET-227 - Cognitive Radar
  • Member of NATO SET-250 - Multi-dimensional Radar Imaging
