Monday 16th – Friday 20th September 2019

Time: 08h30 – 17h00

Venue: TBA

Exam TBA


Course Information


This course presents the principles and techniques fundamental to the operation of the signal processing found in a radar system. The course 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.

Learning Outcomes

Specific course topics include:

  • Fundamentals of radar signals & signal processing
  • Threshold detection of radar targets
  • Constant false alarm rate detectors
  • Doppler processing
  • Radar measurements
  • Radar tracking algorithms
  • Fundamentals of pulse compression waveforms
  • Overview of radar imaging
