This course provides a useful mathematical toolkit for the Radar and Electronic Defence Engineer. Emphasis is on practical calculation and useful ‘tricks of the trade’ rather than mathematical rigour. Having successfully completed this course, students should be able to:

  • Understand calculus, linear algebra, special functions and at a level that enables them to access and make use of the radar research literature;
  • Carry through detailed calculations based on this material;
  • Be able to identify mathematical techniques most appropriate to the analysis of a particular application.
