Open Access research with a European policy impact...

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 European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

The capability of using illuminators of opportunity for target classification is of great interest to the radar community. In particular the alternative use of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) has recently initiated a number of studies that aim to exploit this source of illumination for passive radar. We recently introduced the concept of a GNSS based passive radar for extraction of micro-Doppler signatures from helicopter rotor blades with the aim of identify this kind of targets. In this paper we present the experimental validation of our concept with real data from two different models of helicopter
