Introduction to Radar: Radar block diagram - Radar frequencies - Applications of radar - Radar range equation - Minimum detectable signal - Receiver noise - Integration of radar pulses Radar cross section of targets - Pulse repetition frequencies and range ambiguities
Radar Components: Radar antennas - Review of antenna parameters - Parabolic reflector antennas - Scanning feed reflector antennas - Lens antenna - Cosecant squared antenna pattern - Radomes. Radar receivers: Noise figure in receivers – Mixers – Displays - Duplexers.
Radar Types: CW and FM modulated radar: Doppler effect - CW radar - FM CW radar - multiple frequency CW radar. MTI and pulse Doppler radar: Delay line cancellers - Staggered PRF - Pulse Doppler radar - MTI from a moving platform. Tracking radar: tracking using a radar - Sequential lobing conical scan - Monopulse tracking radar - Target reflection and angular accuracy - Tracking in range - Acquisition.
