Intelligent Aerospace Radar Team (IART) is a research team at University of Oklahoma for airborne radar technologies and missions. The covered areas include small, intelligent airborne radars, airspace surveillance sensors, algorithms for hazard detection and simulations. Unique technologies are particularly useful for unmanned sensing platforms.
