TESPAR shows up on radar - Domain Dynamics wins second contract from DERA

Keywords: Radar, DERA

Domain Dynamics Ltd, signal processing and voice recognition specialist, has won a second contract from DERA, the UK Government Defence Evaluation and Research Agency, to use TESPAR in the passive detection and identification of radar signals in a digital Radar Warning Receiver.

DERA are considering licensing the technique for further evaluation and development into demonstrator hardware.

"The use of Domain Dynamics' patented technology, TESPAR, to identify types of radar signal is another example of TESPAR's adaptability to analyse a huge range of noises and signals," said Ian Taylor, Director responsible for Business Development at Domain Dynamics. "Our applications show that, because TESPAR does not operate in the conventional frequency domain, its analysis of complex signals often brings out distinguishing features of the signal that were not previously apparent, particularly in hostile and noisy environments. These features can be used simply and cost-effectively to aid successful recognition and classification of the signals."

Following the announcement of major investment funding earlier this year, Domain Dynamics has announced several very successful applications of the highly adaptable and cost-effective TESPAR technology utilised by world-renowned companies. Applications have included the automatic testing of the quality of transmitted speech on telephone networks (Rotadata), the identification of suspicious sounds and vibrations made by intruders (Geoquip), automatic fault detection of vehicle engines by analysing engine noises (GenRad), and, to the surprise of many specialists, highly accurate and robust speaker verification using remarkably small data sets.
