MIT Lincoln Laboratory contract for Tim Havens

Associate Professor Tim Havens received a $15,000 contract from MIT Lincoln Laboratory. Tim and his team will investigate signal processing for active phased array systems with simultaneous transmit and receive capability. While this capability offers increased performance in communications, radar, and electronic warfare applications, the challenging aspect is that a high-level of isolation must be achieved between the transmit and receive antennas in order to mitigate self-interference in the array.

Computational Intelligence Aids in Explosive Hazard Detection

To detect buried explosive hazards in places like Afghanistan, and to save the lives of civilians and US soldiers, Michigan Tech researcher Tim Havens realizes it requires a team—a team
of sensors.

This technology has the potential to not only save lives, but also to advance the basic science of how to combine sensors and information together to get a whole better than the sum of its parts.

Associate Professor Timothy Havens received a research award

Timothy HavensAssociate Professor Timothy Havens received a DoD Army Research Office research award with a budget of $99,779 during the first year.

This is also a 3-year project with a total budget of $1,066,799. The project is titled “Multisensor Analysis and Algorithm Development for Detection and Classification of Buried and Obscured Targets.”

Tim and his students will develop new algorithms to detect and classify buried objects,
