Our senior design is to build the real anechoic chamber with an antenna positioning system for Synthetic Aperture Radar to sense visually obscured objects and has applications on geological surveys, crack detection in concrete, or mine detection. Based on the data collected from the scanning, imaging technique and some signal processing techniques is applied to reconstruct the 3D image of scanned objects.

 

Another application for this system is the Antenna pattern measurements, in this measurements, a testing antenna with known pattern will be the transmitter and an antenna as a receiver will scan and the data collected will be processed to get the measured pattern. This measured pattern will be compared with the standard pattern of that transmitter to see how similar they are.
