Electromagnetic detection - 2019

Airborne radar systems


This course provides an overview of airborne radar system applications and system-specific issues.


The course lasts 5 days (33 hours) and includes:

  • 21 hours of lectures
  • 3 x 4-hours engineering design mini-project sessions


The purpose is to draw on basic theoretical and technological aspects to examine how airborne radar equipment is constituted with regard to system optics and design.

For each application, the technical choices resulting from the radar missions requiring them are examined as well as the on-board environment, and only the specific aspects of the envisaged applications discussed in detail.

As such, the radar systems are classified into missions. Previously, constraints common to all these radar systems will have been examined with a summary of the theoretical points, the use of which for airborne radar systems is a sensitive matter.


Course level: Advanced

Engineers must have good general training and have completed ELA 006 "Radar Performance and Applications" or have equivalent knowledge.

Prior completion of course ELA 007 "Radar systems: current and future concepts" is highly recommended.

Learners should be familiar with the main theories as well as the techniques and components of radar.
