Title: THz SAR a New Way to Monitor the World
Biography: Mats Pettersson has worked for more than 25 years in the field of radar systems research at Blekinge Institute of Technology, Swedish Defence Research Institute and Chalmers University of Technology. For all years his research has oriented to new radar signal processing algorithms for future radar surveillance and radar remote sensing systems. He has developed new Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) algorithms and he has done important work for monostatic, bistatic, multi-static radar and circular SAR systems. For these systems he has also achieved algorithms for detection and estimation of various type of targets but focusing on moving objects and change detection between images. Therefore, a combination of SAR processing and array signal processing has been an important part of the research. The developed algorithms do not only consider the common narrow band radar systems but are mainly developed for future UWB band systems that give resolutions below the operating wavelength. He has also experience of modelling electromagnetic scattering, radio communication, Radio Occultation and automotive radar.
