Standoff Through the Wall Imaging Sensor User Evaluation, FCC Certification and Performance Improvement|Final Report Revision
Jul. 25, 2013
Efforts to get FCC approval for the ASTIR (AKELA Standoff Through-the-Wall Imaging Radar) system to operate between 500 MHz and 2000 MHz is reported. Also covered is the AKELA user test and evaluation of the NIJ ASTIR system. Sections following the executive summary include: background; introduction; technical approach; FCC ASTIR Certification; user evaluation testing at Los Angeles Sheriff Department Castaic site; NIJ ASTIR COE ManTech test training; conclusions; and recommendations. ASTIR will operate in the 2900 MHz to 3600 MHz band. “Due to limited user operational testing on complex structures and wall construction materials, it is anticipated that image display information and associated interpretation will require signal processing product improvement. Product improvements will be limited to signal processing and imaging display software - no modifications are required for radar hardware and/or the physical system” (p. 4).
