Seminar: IEEE Student Branch, Windsor Section

Friday, March 1st, 2019

Topic: Design and Instrumentation Challenges of FMCW (Automotive) Radar

Description: Modern radars produce complicated pulses that can present significant measurement challenges. The desire to improve range, resolution and immunity to interference have motivated numerous coding schemes, frequency and phase modulated pulses, frequency chirped pulses and narrow pulses with high overall bandwidth.  In this session, we will discuss some of the design challenges and instrument considerations for radar signal generation and analysis. There will be a live demo of the transmit analysis solution, using the new MSO6 from Tektronix. We will also have some new products from Tektronix on display.

Presented by: Mark Elo, Technical Marketing Manager at Tektronix

Location: Room CEI 3000,  Ed Lumley Center for Engineering Innovation

Date & Time: Thursday, March 14th, 2:30pm – 4:30pm (presentation 2:30 – 3:30pm) (networking 3:45pm. – 4:30pm)

Technical Talk

Saturday, October 27th, 2018

IEEE Signal Processing SocietyIEEE Communications Society, and IEEE Windsor Section presents:

“Doppler Estimation for Aeronautical Satellite OFDM System”

Abstract: Air traffic and onboard data access services are expected to have tremendous growth. To meet the challenges, the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) can be deployed to enable the increased usage of broadband services onboard. The Doppler effect is one of the major issues in implementing OFDM modulation in the aeronautical satellite communication system since the received carrier frequency shifts and Doppler spread result in intercarrier interference (ICI). In this seminar, we will evaluate the Doppler frequency estimation using the parametric method, and Angle of Arrival technique (AoA) to reduce the impact of Doppler effect on system performance. The MUSIC, Eigenvector and Minimum Norm algorithms are used to estimate the subcarriers’ shift of received OFDM symbol. We can find that the both methods can be reducing the effect of ICI in aeronautical satellite environment.

 

Speaker: Mr. Houssein Boud

About Speaker: Mr. Boud is currently a Ph.D. student at Western University. He has completed his M.Sc. in Communications Engineering and Signal Processing at University of Plymouth, UK.
