Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

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.
