ELEN427 - Radar Systems Theory

 

This course is an in-depth coverage of the theory of radar and RF signal propagation, transmission, and reception. Topics covered include the radar range equation; antenna patterns; target cross section; system losses; calculation of signal-to-interference ratios; detection probability; target scintillation; main lobe and side lobe clutter; and moving target indicator (MTI) and pulse Doppler processing. Radar system hardware including transmitters, receivers, and antennas will be introduced and system block diagrams created. Classification of radar types into search, track, or mapping systems will be discussed. NOTE: This course requires the student to purchase additional materials that are not covered by the book grant. Please refer to the Course Materials section for additional details. Prerequisites: ELEN420
