Course Overview

The objectives of this course are to

understand the phenomenon of locating a distant object using the signal scattered by the object
derive the radar range equation and examine the influence of critical parameters
deduce the functioning of various types of radars for different applications.
provide comprehension on the design, operation, and applications of various types of radar systems and subsystems.
learn the principles of target tracking
get an exposure on state of the art fully electronic radar.

The course gives a system approach to the reader from the physical principles  to be able to measure various parameters of an object  ( RADAR) without any physical contact that means the object  not knowing that  its parameters are being measured.  Then the student will be given analysis of the various system equations to control and minimise the cost of the system without much compromise on the performance.  Then various types of radars are explained.   The basic limitation of one type of radar is highlighted and the method to overcome this is suggested.  The various options available for the architecture of the radar are discussed in a lucid manner.  Finally the modern radar used for variety of applications by the developed countries is presented. The course is completed with the explanation on various navigational aids.
