报告题目：Meteor Radars and Multistatic Techniques and Applications
Meteor radars have a long history stretching back to the immediate period following the end of World War II. Dedicated meteor radars were founded in the late 1940's in order to quantify the amount of material reaching Earth each year (flux rate) and the distribution of particle sizes. In more recent times the field has experienced a resurgence of interest and, with the advent of the Internet and superior computing power, observations and results are now available in real time. Although most meteor radars are of monostatic configuration, the number of multistatic systems currently operational is growing. Multistatic meteor radars offer opportunities to measure a more diverse range of both atmospheric and astronomical parameters. This presentation will describe the basic principles of both mono- and multi-static meteor radars. Diagrams and images of existing radar sites will be shown, along with examples of meteor detections and the results that can be obtained from them.
Brian Fuller is the owner and manager of Genesis Software Pty Ltd, an Australian company specialising in the design and manufacture of radars for scientific applications. Brian has more than 25 years of experience in the development of radar systems and leads a creative and dedicated team whose achievements include the development of the SKiYMET meteor radar, the MAARSY VHF MST radar transceiver system, and frequency and time synchronisation techniques for multistatic radar applications.
