A few links for MSc students working on their literature review

I wrote down a few bullet points that might be useful for MSc students working on their literature review and I want to share them.

A few things that might be interesting for you as a student working on a literature review.

(1) Please don’t read the whole paper in detail.
Abstract, partly the introduction, conclusions, and have a look at figures – and if so, a few interesting sections, and
subsections.
The links explain that nicely:

(2) make a literature-review-table such that you can (a) easily go back to the papers, (b) cite them quickly. Also, please think carefully about the columns of the table (methods, used radars, frequency bands, participants, classes in the dataset, etc. pp.).

(3) If you are writing: Please don’t make it fancy in the first instance — What do I mean? Don’t tweak word-by-word and stuck too long on certain paragraphs. Write the sections up; Then, tweak the paragraphs afterward, if you are sure that the section remains forever; sometimes paragraphs get changed or removed later, then all the final tweaks were useless.

MS3 seminar – presentation “Ultra Wide Band Surveillance Radar” by Dr. Mark E. Davis, IEEE Fellow, IEEE Distinguished Lecturer

Ultra Wide Band Surveillance Radar is an emerging technology for detecting and characterizing targets and cultural features for military and geosciences applications. It is essential to have fine range and cross-range resolution to characterize objects near and under severe clutter. This lecture will provide an in-depth look into:

  • The early history of battlefield surveillance radar
  • UWB phased array antenna
  • UWB Synthetic aperture radar (SAR)
  • UWB ground moving target indication
  • New research in multi-node ultra wind band radar

Lecturer Biography: Dr Mark E Davis has over 50 years’ experience in Radar technology and systems development. He has held senior management positions in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Air Force Research Laboratory, and General Electric Aerospace. At DARPA, he was the program manager on both the foliage penetration (FOPEN) radar advanced development program and the GeoSAR foliage penetration mapping radar.

His education includes a PhD in Physics from The Ohio State University, and Bachelor and Master’s Degrees in Electrical Engineering from Syracuse University. He is a Life Fellow of both the IEEE and Military Sensing Symposia, and a member of IEEE Aerospace Electronics Systems Society Board of Governors, VP Conferences, and past-Chair the Radar Systems Panel. He is the 2011 recipient of the AESS Warren D White Award for Excellence in Radar Engineering, and the 2018 IEEE Dennis J. Pickard Medal for Radar Technologies and Applications.
