Radar Systems Engineering

Course Description

Gain the ability to perform systems engineering functions for each required mission, mode of operations, subsystem and interface composing a modern radar system. This course will explain the process of analyzing your mission requirements and flowing down and allocating requirements to specific radar subsystems. The course also will address capability-based architecture development where system constructs are derived from existing software and hardware implementations. Gain insight on assessing third party radars from the systems engineering perspective such as required in competitive assessments or intelligence analysis.
