Signal Processing

Digital signal processing plays a central role in improving modern communication and radar systems. Baseband processing algorithms reduce noise, remove channel distortions, and compensate for hardware imperfections. Incoming signals need to be restored, demodulated, and error-corrected before an estimate of the transmitted information is obtained at the receiver. Radar applications require similar steps and unique algorithms for target detection and tracking.

There is more to radar signal processing than just spotting line crossings in FMCW range-velocity planes. IMST develop sophisticated radar processing algorithms.  

IMST has extensive experience in designing energy and bandwidth efficient communication systems. We can provide custom designs for optimizing data throughput and transmission range in compliance with spectrum regulation.

Rapid prototyping requires efficient tools for performance analysis and baseband optimization. Because the algorithms are complex and interdependent, theoretical considerations must be complemented by simulations of the complete transmission chain, including transmitter, radio channel, models for RF imperfections, and the baseband receiver. At IMST a dedicated group of system engineers use their expertise in baseband design, radio channel modeling and implementation to find the optimal balance between performance and complexity.
