We have used the m:explore as part of a UWB scanning snow sounder to derive stratigraphic information of snow packs. In our experience, the transceiving system is stable and robust, giving repetitive measurements of high quality with marginal inherent noise.

The Ilmsens channelsounder has been used at TU Graz since 2013 to measure the radio channel indoors. It is the perfect tool for analyzing multipath-assisted indoor navigation and tracking algorithms, which use the entire received signal instead of only a few estimated features.

We have used the m:explore to develop, among others, a real-time operating UWB scanner, a sensor network for people localization in 2D and 3D, and UWB-radar with synthetic apperture for static object imaging. Our experiences have confirmed that the m:explore is a robust device with reliable performance for developing short-range UWB sensors. Besides this, we have successfully used m:explore in education, too.
