At Weibel we have the possibility to collect radar measurements of satellites.
For example the ENVISAT satellite and the ISS. As the motion of satellites
is rather well defined, it is possible to point the radar directly at such
objects and take measurements during the entire passage of the satellite
over the sky.
This project is concerned with the use of inverse
synthetic aperture radar technology to examine the motion, dimensions and
orientation of the satellite.
The goals of this project are as follows. The student(s)
- learn and understand the mathematics of SAR and ISAR.
- learn and understand when SAR/ISAR can be applied and to what purpose(s) it can be used.
- implement necessary MATLAB/Python/C++ code to perform the ISAR algorithm.
- Apply the algorithm to real measurements.

Place of work: Weibel HQ and/or place of study.
Birte Kronbak Andersen is not the project supervisor, she just
put the project idea in the Project Bank for Weibel. But a supervisor can
most likely be found at DTU Space.
