High Fidelity Satellite Model in STL Radar Range

STL Mission

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.
