Francois le Chevalier – Thanks a lot!

Dear friends,

Many thanks and warm gratitude to each of you for this superb day in Delft: with my wife Danièle, we have really been deeply moved, and admirative of the seamless organization, the quality and good humour of the presentations, the variety of persons, from the younger students – to which I owe a lot for so many good questions and lively discussions – to the … less young colleagues (but still younger than me – take care!), friends now!

Thanks to each of you, those who were there, and also to those who couldn’t come: these years shared between TU Delft and Thales are certainly my richest professional experience with human nature – and also the best part of my research! And those mornings in Delft, cycling along the canals – even when the weather was not …exactly Italian! – I will miss them, for sure…

Attached are several pictures selected by my wife – just a glimpse of so many exchanges and laughs! She especially appreciated the blue and yellow colours, Vermeer-style she tells me, of the ambiguity functions presented by Pascal. Also, the lifelines sketched by Nikita provide us with a … millenarist view of research achievements!

We will meet again, here or there – anyway, I need Delft from time to time, and there are conferences: Radar 2019 in Toulon, France! The splendid Delft-blue plate you offered me is on the wall, and my thoughts are with you: good health, open and creative thinking, human understanding and joined efforts – and perseverance!

Sincerely, I wish you the best

Fred, Peter and Jiapeng Yin (the PhD student from CITG) did today the first try to observe drone with calibration spherical target using the PARSAX radar. The sphere and drone itself have been clear visible at the range of 1340 m. Now it is time to process data and prepare for full scale calibration campaign.
