WHAT WILL BE YOUR ROLE?

Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) is a high-resolution radar imaging technique used in airborne and spaceborne radars. TNO has developed a mini-SAR system that is circular in design, weighs only 800 grams, and can be mounted on a small drone. This 32-channel radar can perform novel and innovative radar modes in combination with an agile platform, such as a drone. Advanced signal processing for various new imaging and detection modes is being defined and implemented. Furthermore, motion compensation schemes and navigation methods need to be improved and evaluated. This radar is a unique system, that is at the forefront of drone radar development. Its inherent flexibility allows for many new radar modes to be conceived and demonstrated. Depending on your background and interests, the work may also focus on concepts and realisation of very fast processing on FPGA’s or software engineering challenges.


You will perform this assignment in the Department of Radar Technology. We are a passionate and creative group of professionals (60 people) dedicated to the specification, development and evaluation of innovative, high-performance MMICs, miniaturised and integrated RF subsystems, antennas and front-ends. The department is at the heart of novel, game-changing radar system and signal processing concepts for the military, space and civil domains.

 HOW DO YOU WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO TOMORROW'S WORLD? HOW BIG CAN YOUR IMPACT BE? COME AND WORK AT TNO AND ENVISION IT. 

WHAT WE EXPECT FROM YOU

You are in the final stages of your bachelor’s or master’s degree in physics, mathematics, electrical engineering or a similar degree and you have a track record in the field of signal processing.
