Radar group homes in on new lab

30 March 2009

Prof Mike Inggs

Prof Mike Inggs and his Radar Remote Sensing Research Group celebrated their 21st birthday by moving up in the world.

Or, to be more exact, up in the Menzies Building on upper campus, trekking from their cramped quarters on the sixth floor to the roomier seventh floor, just recently added.

The group now enjoys easy access to the roof, which is handy for more than just tea and smoke breaks.

On the roof, researchers can mount antennas for various radar experiments, and they have a good view of both the sea (for clutter measurements), and of aircraft landing at the airport.

From the group's new quarters, they'll get stuck into a host of research projects.

Including work on a new type of radar for air traffic control that uses the signals from television and FM radio stations, cutting out the need for pricey transmitter equipment.
