Studying PhD of Statistical Analysis of Experimental Sea Clutter Data and Development of Clutter Rejection and Target extraction algorithms at Cranfield University in the United Kingdom:
You may be interested to know how radar systems sense their surrounding environment. There are two factors involved in answering this question: 1) transmitting a short electromagnetic waveform, and 2) listening to the reflected echoes of objects by a receiver. It is important to note that if the radar return amplitude at the receiver is above a predefined threshold, a target is declared.
The echo returned to the radar by the scattering of the environment that surrounds the target is called radar clutter, which includes clutter of volume, land, and sea. The radar must be able to distinguish between the target and the clutter because then it can provide a reliable detection, but the question is whether the radar is capable of doing so? The answer is that we are faced with a challenge called the possibility of false alarms which occurs in a situation where, although there is no target, the clutter return is so high that the amplitude of the clutter exceeds the detection threshold, so the radar erroneously announces the target.
To solve this challenge, we need to change the detection thresholds. For this purpose, the radar must do two things: 1) consider the inherent character and various statistics of clutter returns, and 2) use CFAR detection techniques. This course provides students with the opportunity to study, teach, and practice, then gain knowledge of theory, performance metrics, modeling techniques, and design methods, and finally propose a new approach that improves the performance of a radar system.
Students will also enjoy a professional, focused, and dynamic environment and become part of the Cranfield Doctoral Network. The network is made up of research staff and students and provides a platform for researchers to collaborate in a multidisciplinary environment and share their ideas. The purpose of forming this network is to encourage a dynamic and effective research culture based on knowledge and diversity of activities. The transferable skills curriculum, along with a dedicated program of events and seminars, provides students with the opportunity to network and gain social opportunities.
Admission requirements of doctoral degree in Statistical Analysis of Experimental Sea Clutter Data and Development of Clutter Rejection and Target extraction algorithms:
To study this course, students are required to have a first or upper-second class UK honours degree (or equivalent) in Mathematics, Physics, Electronic / Electrical Engineering, or Computer Science.
The course offers a scholarship of up to £16,000 per year plus fees for three years (sponsored by Cranfield University and Hensoldt UK).
Language requirements of doctoral degree in Statistical Analysis of Experimental Sea Clutter Data and Development of Clutter Rejection and Target extraction algorithms:
To study this course, students must prove their ability to communicate in English, but if they do not have the required entry skills, they can apply for one of our EAP courses. The point that students should pay attention to is that the validity of our accepted exams is only for two years. Also, students must show all the elements of the test results in one test because the combination of scores in two or more tests is not acceptable. In addition, all test scores will be reviewed by test providers.
Cranfield requires students to have a minimum test score of: 7 on IELTS (none of the components should be less than 5.5), 100 on TOEFL (the minimum acceptable scores for the skills are: speaking 20, reading 18, listening 17, and writing 17), 68 on Pearson PTE (none of the components should be less than 59), 190 on Cambridge Assessment English (none of the components should be less than 160), overall pass on Language Cert (none of the components should be less than 33), or overall pass on Trinity College London.
