Invitation to SUNSAR Symposium in Oct 2016
Tuesday, July 26, 2016 - 12:45

A practical course, which requires a sound knowledge of Radar Systems and Signal Processing, and teaches you how to use that knowledge to synthesise the design of a system to a requirement, but, also to be able to model alternative designs, and assess the suitability of such designs. This skill is essential when involved with the design of a sensor, or evaluating the usefulness of a sensor for specific applications.
