ARGUS Science Awards 2020 for Patrick Fenske and Andre Scheder
LHFT employees Patrick Fenske and Andre Scheder won first and second place in HENSOLDT’s 2020 ARGUS Science Awards for their excellent master’s theses. Patrick’s master thesis, titled “Investigation of an efficient implementation of a SAR reconstruction algorithm in a multi-user RFID system”, dealt with the design of a particle filter that enables goods to be located in an autonomous robot-based inventory in real time and with an accuracy of a few centimeters. The work was supervised by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Vossiek and M.Sc. Matthias Gareis. Currently, Patrick is working on synchronization and coherence generation in cooperative radar networks.
Andre’s master thesis was titled “Implementation and Characterization of an Inband Full Duplex Isolator for the Implementation of an RF Front End”. The thesis was supervised by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Vossiek and M.Sc. Patrick Gröschel. In the thesis an IBFD isolator, which has the task to suppress the self-interference during an IBFD transmission, based on a passive Electrical Balance Duplexer, was successfully built and tested. Currently Andre is working on mmW circuits.
