The project offered is framed within the Dutch network on small spaceborne radar instruments and applications (NL-RIA) and aims at deriving new Earth Observation mission concepts based on SmallSat platforms. Working closely with other researchers within the network, the selected candidate will:

•Assess the system performance: Evaluation of Instrument performance (considering the system concept done). Identification of the issues affecting the performance and assessment of the radar performance through simulation. Extension of performance assessment for a distributed network. Formulation of requirements for sub-systems.

•Evaluate onboard processing: evaluation onboard data processing strategies and algorithms that lead to a significant reduction of the data volumes; investigation of how the proposed signal processing steps can be implemented in hardware (e.g. use of DSPs or FPGAs, or a combination of analog and digital processing).     


Holding a Ph.D. degree in a topic directly related to the radar remote sensing with a good understanding of radar systems and at least some background knowledge about spaceborne missions. Candidate should be an active team player and cooperate with other members of the knowledge network. Good programming skills in Matlab, Python or a similar high-level programming language is necessary to carry out system model simulation. Experience onboard processing (hardware implementation) is an advantage. Understanding a system design is not necessary but preferable.
