Real time physics based radar sensor (L2)

Optional modules

Access to this new fast and realistic Physics based Radar model developed in collaboration with OKTAL-SE and fully integrated in SCANeR studio.

As the Full-Physics Radar model L3 it relies on the proven OKTAL-SE EM solver capabilities:

  • EM interactions (masking, shadowing, coupling of targets)
  • Multiple paths phenomena
    • Scattering computation using Physical Optics (PO)
    • Multiple reflections computation using Geometrical Optics (GO)
  • Clutter model based on textures (for details)

This model integrates generic processing which enables to provide a Radar point cloud in real-time that exhibits all typical EM phenomenon like coupling between targets or with the environment, multiple reflections, ghost target, etc.
Use SCANeR GUI for configuring Radar model parameters: emission and reception antennas characteristics, aperture, polarization, Doppler parameters, output signal selection, etc.

At Level 2 the radar model provides:

  • Real time computation
  • Optimized Ray-tracing
  • Included processing to produce radar plot
  • Output: plot number, and for each plot, range, azimuth, intensity, speed
  • Plots are displayed and available as SCANeR messages

Requires scenario with pre-characterized terrain, vehicles and object resources.
