Demystifying Radar and Jammer Range Equations
Thursday, July 12, 2018 14:00 until 15:00 EST
To date, the AOC Virtual Series has steered clear of mathematics, but that is about to change! This webinar will tackle the radar and jammer range equations head on to unpack the many layers of information buried in these important results.
By the end of this presentation, attendees will have gained a clearer understanding of how the parameters of radar and EW systems interact to determine system performance - the fundamental objective of the radar and jammer range equations. Factors including antenna gain, radar cross section (RCS), effective isotropic radiated power (EIRP), coherent processing time, range (yes, really!), and others will be explored to understand what they actually mean in real systems.
Warren du Plessis received his bachelors, masters and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Pretoria in 1998, 2003 and 2010 respectively, winning numerous academic awards including the prestigious Vice-Chancellor and Principal's Medal. He has been working in EW and radar since 2007 and is currently an Associate Professor at the University of Pretoria. Warren is a Senior Member of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), a Lifetime Member of the Association of Old Crows (AOC), and a member of the AOC Aardvark Roost Board. He is author of 49 published and accepted peer-reviewed journal and conference papers. Unusually, he is lead or sole author of 32 of his papers, demonstrating the leading role he plays in developing and evaluating innovative new concepts. While his primary research focus has been cross-eye jamming, Warren has also published on issues such as data reduction, cognitive EW, and possible approaches to enhancing EW training.
