Research in  Radar Systems & Remote Sensing Laboratory (RSL) runs the gamut from experimental system development to theoretical signal processing and electromagnetics (EM). Current topics of investigation include multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO), pulse agility, compressive sensing, adaptive transmission, multi-mode operation, high-power spectral efficiency, antenna array/element optimization, and much more. Radar research encompasses multiple disciplines including radio frequency (RF) systems design, estimation & detection theory, computational/theoretical EM, optimization theory, electromagnetic compatibility/electromagnetic interference (EMC/EMI), and signal processing. Faculty and students are engaged in a wide variety of projects ranging from the design, construction, and experimentation of actual radar systems in hardware to the theoretical analysis and development of advanced mathematical concepts.
