UMass Lowell gets radar study grant

By From the Boston Globe

The University of Massachusetts at Lowell's Submillimeter-Wave Technology Lab received $27 million from the US Department of Defense for research over the next five years.

The lab is a member of the Expert Radar Signature Solutions consortium, developed by the Army's National Ground Intelligence Center. For 25 years, researchers have engineered and constructed to scale types of radar systems and models of actual targets, then measured and analyzed the radar scattering to produce identifying characteristics of ships, tanks, and other tactical vehicles.
