Jammer location is based on detected powers received by at least one receiver of signals from the satellite navigation system on board a carrier, by estimation, for each satellite, of the power of the noise at the output of each receiver according to the bearing and distance with respect to the carrier, a calculation of the sum of estimated powers, and extraction of the local maxima in terms of bearing and distance by using a synthetic aperture antenna carrying out a coherent integration of received signals in the direction of each bearing angle by using the known movement of the carrier, in which estimation of the power of the noise at the output of each receiver uses a plurality of coherent integrators and non-coherent integrators, with durations matched to the transit time of a source in the beam of the antenna for various distances for the non-coherent integrators.. . ...

Method for automatic classification of radar objects

Classification of radar objects involves processing a received radar signal in an input channel within a number of successive coherent integration intervals (bursts), detecting an object using doppler filter amplitudes, and producing range reports. A number of range reports are combined using a cluster algorithm to form a plot, and adding doppler filter amplitudes of the two azimuthally adjacent bursts from the same range cell each range report. ...

Method for investigating a sample using cars microscopy

A method for investigating a sample (1), derived from a biological source, using cars microscopy is proposed, in which method a resonance signal generated by coherent anti-stokes raman scattering by excitation of at least one resonance site (5) of the sample (1) by means of laser irradiation is sensed in image-producing fashion. The method according to the present invention encompasses furnishing at least one resonance site (5) by means of a bioorthogonal reaction of an intrinsic chemical structure (2) of the sample (1) with at least one reaction partner (3, 6).. ...

Dynamic light scattering based microrheology of complex fluids with improved single-scattering mode detection

A fluid characterization measuring instrument is disclosed that comprises a sample vessel for a bulk complex sample fluid having a capacity that is substantially larger than a domain size of the complex sample fluid and that is sufficiently large to cause bulk scattering effects to substantially exceed surface effects for the complex fluid sample, a coherent light source positioned to illuminate the bulk complex sample fluid in the sample vessel and a first fibre having a first end positioned to receive backscattered light from the sample after it has interacted with the sample. The first fibre can also be positioned close enough to an optical axis of the coherent light source and to the sample vessel to substantially decrease a contribution of multiply scattered light in the backscattered light. ...

Sensor arrangement and method for determining at least one physical parameter

A sensor arrangement for determining at least one physical parameter of a sensor unit which is activated by at least one periodic excitation, comprising a detection region in which changes of the parameter in the surroundings of the sensor unit lead to an output signal from the sensor unit. The sensor unit is wired such that if there is no change of the parameter in the detection region the output signal is a zero signal at the output of the sensor unit, whereas if there are changes of the parameter in the detection region the output signal is a signal that is not zero and which has a specific amplitude and phase. ...
