In the SpOOTlight: gr-radar

Measuring EM backscatter, free and easy

gr-radar is an out-of-tree module (OOT) for GNU Radio that came about during a Google Summer of Code. Let's take a look at this OOT together, see what it can do, and see what it could become!

In 2014, during the Google Summer of Code (GSoC), Stefan Wunsch took existing radar codes and freed them by publishing them as an OOT. The module was extended by several others, mostly students from the Comunications Engineering Lab at KIT, Karlsruhe, Germany. This presentation will take the toolbox and check out it's current capabilities, giving a short introduction into radar, the toolbox itself, and what it could become.
