Reports Outline Radar and Sonar Research Findings from B. Demissie and Colleagues (Clutter cancellation in passive radar using GSM broadcast channels)

September 12, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Data detailed on Radar and Sonar Research have been presented. According to news reporting out of Wachtberg, Germany, by NewsRx editors, the research stated, "This study focuses on passive coherent location using global system for mobile communications base stations transmitting mainly dummy bursts in idle mode."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research, "The authors present adaptive delay line canceller techniques to suppress the zero-Doppler direct path and its clutter almost down to the receiver noise level. The proposed approaches offer the following two advantages compared with the other clutter cancellation techniques: they are fail-safe with respect to the errors in the reference signal extraction simply because they do not require any knowledge of the reference signal and they even work in severely non-stationary clutter conditions."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The effectiveness of the approaches is demonstrated by means of measurements recorded with an experimental passive bistatic radar system."
