Download CPD – RED Brochure 2015
This course presents the principles and techniques fundamental to the operation of the signal processing found in a radar system. The course closely follows the recommended textbook (Principles of Modern Radar, Scitech Publishers) very closely.
This course requires students to have a good background in Mathematics, Physics, and computer programming, probably at an Honours Level (4 years of study). In addition, it is highly recommended that the student should have completed an introductory course in Radar Systems (such as EEE5104F/S), or have had practical exposure to radar systems in the work place, or as part of an undergraduate course in Radar Systems.
Students must be proficient in tools such as Octave, MathCad, Mathematica, Simulink/Matlab, spreadsheets (OpenOffice, Excel), as they are used extensively in the analysis and design examples. Students will use the tools most familiar to themselves.
