|Intro to Radar Systems|
Introduction to Radar Systems (On-Demand Course)
Course Length: 18 hours total - delivered across 6 sessions of 3-hours each. Each session contains lecture and practical problems.
This course introduces the audience to radar systems in a military context, with a focus on search and tracking radars associated with modern day threats. Conducted in six modules covering: radar fundamentals, the electromagnetic environment, target detection, antennas, arrays, signal processing, search radars, and tracking radars. A select set of advanced topics such as Low Probability of Intercept (LPI) systems, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), and target recognition will also be explored. At the end of this course students will be able to understand and model threat radar systems, and posses the required knowledge for further training in electronic intelligence (ELINT) and countermeasure development.
There is a downloadable course syllabus provided for each session. It contains copies of all visual aids and problem worksheets for that session. It will be available for download in the meeting room.
Each session was presented LIVE by an actively engaged instructor. The virtual classroom allowed learners to “raise a hand,” ask questions audibly or type them in the chat, and the instructor responded in real-time. It’s just like sitting in the classroom.
These "Live Educational Courses" presented by AOC are recorded when broadcast live and are subsequently made available to registrants for 30 days in our "On-Demand Educational Courses" catalog.
