Bio-inspired radar systems incorporate intelligent information processing (IIP) to identify a wide radio frequency (RF) signal processing application range from detection to image identification. Bio-inspired IIP focuses on mixed-signal radar, microwave, coherent source, wavelets, millimeter wave, polymorphic, self-organization, self-assembly, nanoprocessors, and nanosystems of systems architectures to enable real-time information extraction and context processing. The objective of this research is to address a broad spectrum of information fusion, algorithms, and embedded processing for developing IIP radar architectures for both receiver and transmission technologies.
