Contribution to Conference
The paper focuses on scientific issues related to new application of GPS in radar networks using the effect of Forward Scattering (FS) of electromagnetic waves to detect, locate and classify objects by their GPS radio shadows. The aim of the paper is to make experimental studies of GPS radio shadows of different objects irradiated by GPS signals and to develop methods and algorithms for automatic detection, estimation and classification of the shadows of these objects. The practical utility of the results obtained is to use a specific processing of the received signal in the GPS receiver, then to use the extracted information for positioning and classification of moving objects; for accurate assessment of the geographic location of fixed objects by method triangulation in systems for transport management, security of zones, subsequent identification of the detected objects from digital geographical maps.
