Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

Abstract

The capability to recognize ballistic threats, is a critical topic due to the increasing effectiveness of resultant objects and to economical constraints. In particular the ability to distinguish between warheads and decoys is crucial in order to mitigate the number of shots per hit and to maximize the ammunition capabilities. For this reason a reliable technique to classify warheads and decoys is required. In this paper the use of the micro-Doppler signatures in conjunction with the 2-Dimensional Gabor filter is presented for this problem. The effectiveness of the proposed approach is demonstrated through the use of real data.
