Radar Systems Training Fundamentals Workshop

This three-day Radar Systems Training Fundamentals Workshop course introduces the student to the fundamentals of radar systems engineering. The course begins by describing how radar sensors perform critical measurements and the limitation of those measurements. The radar range equation in its many forms is derived, and examples of its applications to different situations are demonstrated. The generation and reception of radar signals are explained through a holistic rather than piecemeal discussion of the radar transmitter, antenna, receiver, and signal processing. The Radar Systems Fundamentals course wraps up with an explanation of radar detection and tracking of targets in noise and clutter. The Radar Systems Training Fundamentals Workshop course is valuable to engineers and scientists who are entering the field or as a review for employees who want a system-level overview. A comprehensive set of notes and references will be provided to all attendees. Students will also receive Matlab scripts that they can use to perform radar system performance assessments.

Radar Systems Training Fundamentals Workshop covers the following topics:

  • Radar Systems Fundamentals: Radar Measurements
  • Radar Systems Fundamentals: Radar Range Equation
  • Radar Systems Fundamentals: Target and Clutter Reflectivity
  • Radar Systems Fundamentals: Propagation of RF Signals
  • Radar Systems Fundamentals: Radar Transmitter/Antenna/Receiver
  • And more…
  • 3 days of Radar Systems Training Fundamentals Workshop with an expert instructor
  • Radar Systems Fundamentals Guide
  • Certificate of Completion
  • 100% Satisfaction Guarantee

Upon completing this Radar Systems Training Fundamentals Workshop course, learners will be able to meet these objectives:

  • How radars measure target range, bearing, and velocity.
  • How the radar range equation is used to estimate radar system performance including received power, target SNR and maximum detection range.
  • System design and external factors driving radar system performance include transmitter power, antenna gain, pulse duration, system bandwidth, target RCS, and RF propagation.

Radar Systems Training

Course Syllabus:
  1. Radar Measurements. Target ranging, target bearing, target size estimation, radar range resolution, range rate, Doppler velocity, and radar line-of-sight horizon.
  2. Radar Range Equation. Description of factors affecting radar detection performance; system design choices such transmit power, antenna, signal frequency, and system bandwidth; external factors including target reflectivity, clutter, atmospheric attenuation, and RF signal propagation; use of radar range equation for estimating receive power, target signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), and maximum detection range.
  3. Target and Clutter Reflectivity. Target radar cross section (RCS), Swerling model for fluctuating targets, volume and surface clutter, and ground and ocean clutter models. Radar Systems Training Fundamentals Workshop
  4. Propagation of RF Signals. Free space propagation, atmospheric attenuation, ducting, and significance of RF transmit frequency.
  5. Radar Transmitter/Antenna/Receiver. Antenna concepts, phased array antennas, radar signal generation, RF signal heterodyning (upconversion and downconversion), signal amplification, RF receiver components, dynamic range, and system (cascade) noise figure.
  6. Radar Detection. Probability Density Functions (PDFs), Target and Noise PDFs, Probability of Detection, False Alarm Rate (FAR), constant FAR (CFAR) threshold, and receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves.
  7. Radar Tracking. Range and angle measurement errors, tracking, Alpha-Beta trackers, Kalman Filters, and track formation and gating.
