Course further information

Radar is still the widespread technique for independent Surveillance, with an important contribution to safety and the overall performance of the Network. This course goes into the details of primary and secondary radar, including Mode S. At the end of the course the student will have an in-depth understanding of what happens from detection to output: antenna, receiver/transmitter, signal processing and plot processing/extraction. The course consists of 3 days theoretical lectures and a 1-day practical session.
Basic radar knowledge, corresponding with the radar content of the SUR-CHAIN course, is required.
Important Note
Be sure you can stay until at least 16.00h on the last day, otherwise you miss an interesting practical session.
At the end of the course students will be able to: - Explain the complete radar chain - Describe the main blocks in the radar chain (Antenna, TX/RX, Signal and plot processing) - Explain radar limitations - Explain how radar measurements and analysis can be made - Explain the context in which radar operates (regulation, safety, performance)
This course takes place over 4 days.
Surveillance engineers with a Surveillance understanding that corresponds with the objectives of the SUR-CHAIN course
