Radar/SAR awaits Compressed Sensing

Compressed sensing (CS) techniques offer a mathmatical framework for the detection and allocation of sparse signals with a reduced number of samples. Today, modern radar systems operate with high bandwidths - demanding high sample rates according to the Shannon-Nyquist theorem - and a huge number of single elements for phased array antennas. Often only a small amount of target parameters is the final output, raising the question, whether CS could be a good means to reduce data size, complexity, weight, power consumption and costs of radar systems. The amount of publications addressing the application of CS to radar is still limited, leaving open a number of questions.



This International Workshop will bring together experts of Compressive Sensing to explore the state-of-the-art in development of such techniques in the different nations and for the different applications and to turn out its advantages or possible drawbacks compared to classical solutions. The workshop program will include invited speeches from distinguished experts as well as contributed talks.
