  • A Ka-band Radar Interferometer: development and testing 

    Galobart Tor, Bruno (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / University of Massachusetts at Amherst, 2013-07-11)
    Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  University of Massachusetts at Amherst
    [ANGLÈS] Radar interferometry is a remote sensing technique that consists in transmitting a signal and measuring the phase difference of the reflected signal between two antennas separated by a baseline. This phase difference ...
  • Data processing of a polarimetric X-Band phased array weather radar 

    Vilardell Sánchez, Jezabel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-07)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  University of Massachusetts at Amherst
    Weather forecast estimation has been a matter of analysis for many years. The arrival of dual polarization radars meant an improvement due to the incorporation of new variables. This project illustrates how to obtain the ...
  • Design of a reflected power canceller for single-antenna FMC radars 

    Amézaga Sarries, Adrià (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Microwave Sensing Laboratory, 2013-12-10)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  University of Massachusetts at Amherst
    [ANGLÈS] Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave radars suffer from an undesirable effect called transmitter leakage. The power leak between transmitter and receiver due to the lack isolation impairs reception performance. The ...
  • Phased-Array Antenna Calibration and Cross-polarization improvement of an X-band Weather Radar 

    Masalias Huguet, Gerard (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-10)
    Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  University of Massachusetts at Amherst
    Dual-polarized phased-array radars used for weather retrieval purposes is an emerging tendency over the last few years. The dual-polarization technology provides an expanded range of weather products and the reliability ...
