Applications of millimetre wave radar for UAV detection and classification

Samiur Rahman, Duncan A. Robertson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter presents a comprehensive survey of published work on millimetrewave radar applied to UAV detection and classification, covering the reported radar systems, UAV RCS characteristics and micro-Doppler signatures. Recent work onthe specific signatures of UAVs equipped with a variety of threat payloads is thendescribed. The chapter concludes with a review of classification methods that areapplied to millimetre wave radar data in order to discriminate UAVs.
