Radar & EW School

Texas 2023 4-Day Workshop

Overview

Overview

Radar & Electronic Warfare School

This 4-day workshop is divided into two, two-day mini-courses. The course is based on an experiential approach, where students will learn theory and then immediately build or test hardware that demonstrates the key learnings. You may take either mini-course or take them both for a full 4-day workshop.

In the first mini-course, you will learn the basics of modern digital radio communication and radar system. Working in a team, you will build several modern architectures such as the QAM radio found in your cell phone and a Bluetooth radio. In addition you will build a frequency modulated, continuous wave radar (FMCW).

The second mini-course is on electronic warfare (EW). In this course you will learn the vulnerabilities of radio and radar systems and how they can be negatively affected by EW. You will then learn methods to counter act EW, including avoiding jamming and spoofing. Using a software defined radio, you will learn how to spoof a garage door opener or key fob as well as how to jam common wireless systems.

The workshops are suitable for undergraduates. We recommend some previous radio system background if you only take the EW mini-course.

On campus housing will be provided (free) for UG students. Limited spaces are available, so apply soon!

Application

Texas 2023 4-Day Workshop Application

Please complete the application below. The course is open to anyone interested in communication, radar and EW systems. Priority will be given to UG students and military connecting personnel, however we expect there will be limited room for general industry participants and graduate students.

The course is on-campus at University of Texas at Dallas.

When completing the application, make sure to select which sessions you are applying for.  We encourage UG and Graduate students, as well as those working in industry to apply.

Admission is based on availability and your applications. Please fill out all fields so your application can be fully reviewed.

Prof. David S. Ricketts

Prof. David Rickettsreceived his PhD in engineering and applied sciences from Harvard University and his BS and MS degrees in electrical engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Prior to joining academia, he spent eight years in industry developing more than 40 integrated circuits in mixed-signal, RF and power management applications. Ricketts’ research crosses the fields of physics, materials science and circuit design, investigating the ultimate capabilities of microelectronic devices and how these devices are harnessed by differing circuit topologies to produce the highest performing systems.

Prof. Jacob Adams

Prof. Jacob Adams received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Ohio State University and the PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He worked as an Intelligence Community Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Electromagnetics Laboratory at the University of Illinois and joined the faculty at NC State in 2013. Adams studies antennas in applications including mobile communications, wireless sensing, and defense systems with a focus on reconfigurable antennas, novel materials, and eigendecomposition methods in electromagnetics. Adams is the recipient of a DARPA Young Faculty Award and the Army Research Office Young Investigator Award. received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Ohio State University and the PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
