Leveraging new FPGA/RF COTS equipment to develop multi-role RF sensing tools for future platforms

Funder DASA
Amount £ 100 000


Research topics Radar | FPGA | Electronic Surveillance


This project looks to employ a newly released disruptive capability COTS hardware solution to perform multiple roles on a defence platform. The Xilinx RFSoC is a full RF system on a chip that is able to both transmit and receive on 8 channels and has significant potential to revolutionise the Electronic Warfare domain.
UCL is in an excellent position to harness many years of experience in innovative Radar and EW driving research. The key steps of the project are the establishment of templates for operation as 1) Active Radar 2) Passive Radar and 3) Electronic Surveillance on the RFSoC.
