Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Detection algorithms for small UAVs and drones
  • Characterisation of the RCS of small UAVs under different conditions (materials, shapes, radar frequency, and so on)
  • Tracking algorithms for small UAVs
  • Classification algorithms to distinguish different models of small UAVs
  • Classification of small UAVs vs. false targets, e.g. large birds
  • Application of artificial intelligence such as neural networks or reinforcement learning for classification and tracking of small UAVs
  • Identification of payloads carried by small UAVs and possible inference of intent (friends vs. for classification)
  • Passive radar techniques applied for surveillance of small UAVs as targets
  • Fusion of information from radar sensors with electro-optics and acoustic sensors for surveillance of small UAVs
  • Radar characteristics of swarms of small UAVs
