Radar Systems Design and Engineering Training Workshop

This Radar Systems Design and Engineering Training Workshop covers radar functionality, architecture, and performance. Fundamental radar issues such as transmitter stability, antenna pattern, clutter, jamming, propagation, target cross-section, dynamic range, receiver noise, receiver architecture, waveforms, processing, and target detection are treated in detail within the unifying context of the radar range equation and examined within the contexts of surface and airborne radar platforms and their respective applications.

Advanced topics such as pulse compression, electronically steered arrays, and active phased arrays are covered, together with the related issues of failure compensation and autocalibration. The fundamentals of multi-target tracking principles are covered, and detailed examples of surface and airborne radars are presented. This Radar Systems Design and Engineering Training course is designed for engineers and engineering managers who wish to understand how surface and airborne radar systems work and to familiarize themselves with pertinent design issues and the current technological frontiers.
