Event Description

Technical Education Webinar Series

Title: Deep Learning for Radar and Communications

Date: March 31, 2020

Time: 8am PT / 11am ET

Sponsored by: MathWorks

Presented by: Rick Gentile, Senior Product Manager

Next generation RF receivers have to operate in harsh environments where interference of all kinds increase the system level challenges. These types of receivers have numerous applications including cognitive radar, software-defined radio, and more generally, systems that require efficient spectrum management.

In this webinar, we will demonstrate techniques to apply Deep Learning and Machine Learning networks for a range of radar and wireless communications systems. The webinar will cover:

  • Trade-offs between machine learning and deep learning workflows
  • Data collection and labeling from off-the-shelf radars and software-defined radios to train and test classifiers
  • Data synthesis to train Deep Learning and Machine Learning networks
  • Efficient ways to work with radar and communications I/Q signals, including feature extraction techniques to improve classification results
  • Application examples with Radar RCS and micro-Doppler identification, radar/comms waveform modulation ID, RF Fingerprinting, and 5G channel estimation
