Content / Educational ObjectivesIntroduction to avionics and radar systems.
Development of the radar equation without losses and with losses and noise. Types of radar systems their equations, characterizations and parameters.
The use of pulse compression for better radar resolution and the matched filter for it.
Development of the target detection and false alarm probabilities in the presence of noise for various RCS. Development of measurement methods of range, velocity and angles. Description of the radar hardware elements (transmitter, antenna, receiver and processor), their technologies and costs.

After successful completion of this course, the students can apply methods of calulation and assessment for radar systems performances .
After successful completion of this course, the students can analyze and evaluate the probability of detection of various target on various radar systems.
After successful completion of this course, the students can conceptually design basic radar system using the required components and methods of integration.
