EEE5105Z – Fundamentals of Radar Signal and Data Processing
Presented by: A. Wilkinson and F. Nicolls
Time: 08h30 – 17h00
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.
Specific course topics include:
Fundamentals of radar signals & signal processing
Threshold detection of radar targets
Constant false alarm rate detectors
Radar tracking algorithms
Fundamentals of pulse compression waveforms
Overview of radar imaging
