Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Modern radar systems, such as co-located or distributed MIMO radar, often operate in very hostile environments. In such a scenario the selection of the best waveform to be used is an important aspect in order to maximize the performance. In this paper we introduce the use of the Fractional Fourier Transform as a tool to generate libraries of phase coded waveforms. The analysis of the performance of the generated libraries demonstrates how the novel approach can introduce benefits for specific applications with a relatively simple effort and with limited or no extra resource requirement.
