Three-Dimensional Radar image overlaid on a photograph

Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
This picture is important because it allows you to visually gain an understanding of how an object may be interpreted by radar. A single high-resolution photographic image taken of an object and the resulting 3D radar image generated from the model.
A synthetic aperture radar (SAR) volumetric image of a target was formed with Cranfield’s mini-GBSAR scanner, then overlaid over the target’s photograph. This shows a visual representation of backscattered electromagnetic waves. By comparing the representation against the original, a better understanding of the radar features is attained.
This relates to my work on understanding radar object characteristics for classification using machine learning techniques.
