DescriptionOne lecture (1h) and four sessions (3h each) The event will mimic the MIT OpenCourseWare course entitled, “Build a Small Radar System Capable of Sensing Range, Doppler, and Synthetic Aperture Radar Imaging.” A series of tutorials will be given by Dr. Sajid Ahmed in order to provide students with the necessary background for the workshop portion of the course and stimulate interest in the topic. Participants with an enthusiasm for electronics, amateur radio, physics, or electromagnetics will have the opportunity to work in groups to construct a small radar system from purchased materials. The radar systems will then be used to perform velocity (Doppler) and imaging experiments on objects around campus, such as on bicycles or trees. The course will provide students with a broad overview of radar systems, their inner workings, as well as current research in the field. Participants should have experience in MATLAB and basic electronics. Presentation during the Science Fun Fair on Sunday, January, 27 afternoon
John Lipor is currently a master's student in Electrical Engineering at KAUST. His research focus is on multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) radar.
Dr Sajid Ahmed received the M. Sc in Communication Engineering from the University of Manchester, Institute of Science and Technology, UK in 2002 and PhD in Digital Signal Processing at the King’s College London and Cardiff University, UK in 2005. Presently, he is working as a Research Scientist in the Computer, Electrical, and Mathematical Science and Engineering (CEMSE) Division of KAUST. He has been a Research Fellow at the Queen's University Belfast, UK and University of Edinburgh, UK. His graduate and postdoctoral research has focused on the areas of array signal processing with applications to communications and radar. He is a Senior member of IEEE and a recipient of contribution award from the University of Edinburgh/Defense, Science, and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) of the Ministry of Defence, UK, for his exceptional research in the field of MIMO radar.
