%0A
%0AAbstract%3A%0A%0AOptical%0Ainterferometry is a widely used technique for ultra-precision distance%0Ameasurements in many areas of science and technology, enabling fundamental%0Aphysical experiments, such as the hunt for gravitational waves, and%0Aunderpinning important industrial technologies, such as semiconductor%0Afabrication. My particular research deals with the question on how multiple%0Ameasurements at different points can be taken simultaneously using only one%0Ainstrument. This can be achieved by appropriately modulating...

Baseband version of the bat-inspired spectrogram correlation and transformation receiver

Krasin Georgiev
Poster presentation at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.Echolocating bats have evolved an excellent ability to detect, resolve and discriminate targets in highly challenging environments. They have had more than 50 million years of evolution to optimise their echolocation system and behavioural experiments have shown their exceptional ability to detect and classify targets even in highly cluttered surroundings. Behavioural experiments have demonstrated that bats are able to resolve closely located scatterers: • a two-point...

Low-altitude unmanned aerial vehicles for the rapid and high-resolution determination of contamination

Peter Martin
Poster presentation at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium. Following the events of March 2011 at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP), a considerable quantity of radiation was released into the local Japanese as well as the global environment. Much work and expense is currently being devoted to the remediation of a large area of eastern Japan contaminated primarily by radiocaesium. Due to the complex nature of the environment affected by the release,...

UAV Susceptibility and self-protection measures

Ioannis Vagias
Poster presentation at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.The use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) has proliferated in the defence, security and scientific communities. Although still immature, the UAV market is the fastest growing sector of the defence industry, as senior and junior tactical military commanders request frequently both Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) and Close Air Support from unmanned aerial platforms. This increased dependence on UAVs, the associated attrition rate due to hostile...

Accurate, fast and stable solver for electromagnetic scattering of absorbing layer materials

Alexandre Dély
Poster presentation at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium.The boundary element method is an efficient and flexible tool for the modelling of scattering of electromagnetic waves by conducting and penetrable objects. It finds applications in the solution of forward and inverse problems in e.g. radar footprint determination, stealth technology, and imaging for diagnostics and security. To model scattering by objects that are for almost perfectly conducting, the classic equations are augmented with a so...

Crowdsourcing with serious games for defence procurement: reducing 'In-Service' modifications through early mass-user engagement

Edward Oates
Poster presentation at the 2016 Defence and Security Doctoral Symposium. This study takes a novel approach to Human-Computer Interface design within defence procurement. Through the use of a Serious Game, developed using Open Source coding techniques and internally Crowdsourced, the detailed design of defence equipment is developed through a wider than usual range of user perspectives. Initial results show a quantitative and qualitative link between user designed features and mission success.
