Radio Frequency (RF) Measurements for Human Detection, Tracking, and Identification

Report No. ARL-TR-4302
Authors: Thomas J. Pizzillo
Date/Pages: October 2007; 42 pages
Abstract: This report describes a protocol that is to be used during radio frequency measurements of humans. The purpose of the experiment is to measure the unique radar signature of walking humans so that methods of detecting and classifying dismounts can be developed. This information is needed for emerging UAV-based radar systems that must operate in complex urban environments. This report provides details of the experimental procedure, locations, safety considerations, and instrumentation. Also included is the volunteer agreement affidavit and the volunteer solicitation advertisement.
