The group includes the Radar Labs which consist of multi-sensor facilities on the roof of the EEMCS building, most importantly the fully reconfigurable polarimetric wideband radars PARSAX and MESEWI, the located at Cabauw radar facilities TARA and IDRA, and the antenna measurement chamber DUCAT. The labs include also a distributed radar system for the surveillance of the lower airspace (RAEBELL), a millimetre-wave and UWB indoor laboratory, a multichannel transmission MIMO Radar, and a ground penetrating radar measurement site. This infrastructure is leading in Europe.

February: PARSAX radar measures the drone at the distance of 8 km
On February 7, 2018 the Microwave Sensing, Signals and Systems (MS3) group
run small measurement campaign to validate the ability the PARSAX S-band
radar to measure polarimetric micro-Doppler characteristics of small UAV/drones.
The drone was flying at the height 100 m, 8 km away from the radar.
The video shows the detail structure of micro-Doppler signals from rotating
drone's blades with good signal to noise ratio. Such measurements can provide
an important input and support for the development of drones detection and
classification algorithms for security and safety applications.
December: Installation of the new antenna system for the MESEWI radar
November: New processing of test drive data for 77GHz automotive radar Dolphin
