Local field work

Initial testing of AVTIS was carried out in and around St Andrews. The image below is the AVTIS view from the roof of the physics department.

AVTIS 1 view from the department roof

This is a typical scan out over the campus with a variety of buildings, trees and lamppost showing up clearly. At such close range the return signal from the building in front of Physics is particularly strong and distinct (red) with smaller or less reflective objects (trees and lampposts) showing less of a reflection of the radar signal (yellow/green). Note also how the trees provide a reflection that is more spread out than the man made objects.

Testing was also carried out at local Balmullo Quarry (above).
