Modeling and Simulation of Radar Systems

Course Description

Develop techniques for modeling & simulation of modern radars to apply to radar systems design, analysis, test and evaluation and performance assessment. Begin with the radar equation, then extend modeling & simulation to introduce general radar subsystems (transmitters, receivers and antennas). Explore phenomenology (propagation and clutter), target physics (RCS and dynamics) and electronic attack to develop the radar modeling & simulation and for the further development of modeling & simulation scenarios.

This course also provides a free tutorial (Modeling and Simulation of Radar Systems Tutorial) of Matlab and Simulink training for those who need training or a refresher in the fundamentals of using Matlab and/or Simulink. If available, the tutorial will display as an optional item during the checkout process.
