Radar Performance: Principles and Limitations (21 hrs)

Course Description

Get an overview of the operation of coherent radar systems, with several diverse applications, and an understanding of the performance limitations relative to the ideal system. Better understand the performance of coherent radar systems in the presence of contaminating factors associated with system instabilities and clutter.

Who Should Attend

Engineers and scientists who are involved in the research, analysis, design, and development of coherent radar systems, and who need a better understanding of the performance of coherent radar systems in the presence of contaminating factors associated with system instabilities and clutter should attend. For those students who are not involved with radar system design, or for those not familiar with particular radar-related topics, introductory topics are presented.

How You Will Benefit

  • Determine the non-ideal performance of coherent radar systems, insofar as the most salient functions and the most salient contaminating sources of system instability are concerned
