Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Research is carried out at different levels, from basic to applied research, and within a variety of bodies, which span from academia to industry and government institutions. NATO has its own organisation that deals with science and technology, namely the Science and Technology Organisation. Within such an organisation, a number of research-related activities are carried out. In particular, the Collaborative Support Office is in charge of fostering and supporting research collaboration among NATO and NATO -friendly nations. It is within this framework that the Research Task Group (RTG) NATO SET -196 on ‘Multichannel and Multi -static Radar Imaging of Non Cooperative Targets’ was created and where more than ten nations have contributed to the results that have been presented in this book. Chapter Contents: • 11.1 The role and impact of NATO SET-196 RTG within and outside NATO • 11.2 Progress made by NATO SET-196 within multidimensional radar imaging • 11.3 Lesson learnt and open issues • 11.4 The way ahead for multidimensional radar imaging systems • 11.4.1 Towards affordable multidimensional radar imaging systems • 11.4.2 Clusters and swarms.
