This project includes several possible M.Sc projects and can be adapted to fit interests and competence of students. The overall background for the project is an existing CMOS radar sensor platform where the goal is to evaluate existing circuit components and investigate possible new implementations that can improve performance and / or energy efficiency. Potential projects can can include RF front-end components, high-speed samplers, data-converters, but also algorithm development.
A low frequency (small) antenna suitable for planetary rover installation is to be designed, manufactured and tested.
The RIMFAX antenna mounted on the rover and will see both stationary and moving parts of the rover. This master project will study different methods for remove the background signal from the rover structure.
The RIMFAX antenna mounted on the rover radiates in all directions. Some energy will be reflected back from surface targets. A simulator that calculates the scattering from the surface shall be developed.
