Submillimeter-Wave Technology Laboratory

Exploring the Microwave, mm-Wave, & THz Regions of the Electromagnetic Spectrum

Target Under Test in STL Radar Range.

High Fidelity Satellite Model in STL Radar Range


As a major UMass Lowell research facility, the Submillimeter-Wave Technology Laboratory's (STL) primary mission is to engage with UMass Lowell students, faculty, and external sponsors to develop novel solutions to high frequency remote sensing, electromagnetic scattering, radar imaging, and dielectric materials characterization challenges in the microwave, millimeter-wave, and THz regions of the electromagnetic spectrum.

STL also serves as a prime contractor on a US Army radar program delivering direct government support in UHF-band thru W-band target signature acquisition, radar range design/construction, computational electromagnetic modeling, and data processing and analysis tools.
