Ulrich Scholten, PhD

Ulrich is cofounder of SkyRadar, taking care of the procedural and software parts. He has been working for the aviation control market since the early 2000s, trying to blend qualification requirements in ATC with modern and scalable technical solutions. Ulrich holds a PhD in information technology and in several patents on modern radars. His research is regularly published in A-rated journals. Ulrich has spoken in 100+ Universities, Academies and Research Centers around the world and is co-editor of several security related blogs with more than 100.000 monthly readers.

Heatmap of Range and Doppler Made Visible with Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) (Video)

The following video visualizes the Doppler frequencies of a person approaching and moving away from the radar source. We apply Fast Fourier Transform.

Video: FFT Plot of a Pulsed Doppler Radar Implemented with SkyRadar's NextGen Radar and FreeScopes

This article features a video on an FFT plot. It has been implemented in real-time, just by connecting and calibrating the blocks in the block-diagram. The video shows well how the FFT amplitude moves to the right, when the person approaches and to the left when the person moves away from the source.
