ECE 532: Radar Engineering
Fundamentals of microwave radar engineering and radar system analysis. The course covers the radar equation, radar detection theory, noise analysis, radar cross-section, continuous wave and pulsed systems, moving target indicators, pulse compression, radar transmitters and receivers. Also covered are radar systems such as pulsed Doppler radar, synthetic aperture radar (SAR), inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR), polarimetric radar and interferometric radar. Applications include target detection, radar remote sensing, satellite oceanography, and terrain mapping.
