Closed loop adaptive radar resource allocation (CLARA)

Themes: Signal processing for communication

Design of a radar system to operate in a congested and contested environment
CLARA is a joint project with TNO and NLDA, entitled “Closed-Loop, Adaptive Radar resource Allocation”. The research is supervised by Prof. Richard Heusdens (NLDA), Prof. Geert Leus (TUD) and Dr. Laura Anitori (TNO).

The goal of the project is to build a complete resource allocation framework, including high-level (e.g., assigning resources such as time and bandwidth to tasks such as tracking and surveillance) and low-level (e.g., waveform design) system design and optimization. Fully adaptive, closed-loop radars are expected to be one of the major innovations for the future generations of sensor suites of the Royal Dutch Navy.
