Abstract: Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) carried by Unmanned Arial Vehicle (UAV) is getting more and more attention in military and defence applications. It can conduct imaging and moving target detection with very high resolution at various weather conditions. The move towards developing usage of UAV was even highlighted earlier this year during Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's National Day Rally 2012 - A team from NTU participated in a UAV competition organised by US Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA and came in top ten out of 140 teams. In this project, the research topic of a SAR to operate in a UAV will be investigated from system perspective, and the key technical parameters and effects will be studied. In addition, the preliminary experiment by putting a simple radar prototype in a smart UAV platform may be done. The project will be conducted in a collaborative team between school of EEE and TL@NTU. By doing the project, we managed to pick up multidiscipline knowledge and skills in the area of electrical system and aerial flight system. The assigned project part for the student of this report is to study and research on Field-programmable gate array (FPGA) to see how it can used in a radar system fitted on-board of a UAV for image capturing.
