Self Charging Solar Battery for Ground Forward Scatter Radar (FSR) Micro Sensor
This work presents a new design of solar energy powered battery module for ground Forward Scatter Radar (FSR) microsensor devices. Ground FSR micro-sensors are used to form radar network for ground target detection and classification. The device is expected to be smaller in size, light in weight and robust for easily adaptive to any environmental terrain. A battery module as a power source for this radar sensor device is designed to guarantee for the radar sensor functioning faultlessly for a longer time period. Self-charging capability is enabled by means of having photovoltaic elements in the newly designed power module to ensure continuous power supply for the micro-sensor devices remotely. The power module is designed and regulated to output voltage level of 6 V and expected to power up the radar sensory circuitry for the FSR micro-sensor devices.
