ELA-006 B
Electromagnetic detection - 2022

Performance capabilities and applications of radar

Basic principles for the preliminary design phase


This training is intended for system engineers and radar component specialists.

It provides an overview of radar in four areas: physical principles, theory, technology and application techniques, which will be explored according to a comprehensive and coherent program.


The course lasts 9.5 days (59 hours) over two non-consecutive weeks organized as follows:

1st part (5 days), including:

12 x 1.5-hours lectures

10.5 hours of lecturer-led exercises

2nd part (4.5 days), including:

7 x 1.5-hours lectures

13.5 hours of lecturer-led exercises

1 x 3-hours recap - 1 final discussion

Learners are required to bring a pocket scientific calculator.


The course is for engineers or technicians with a basic knowledge of electronics and who work in a field where radars are used.

It provides an understanding of the radar phenomena, the possibilities of these systems and the constraints governing them today and in the near future. It concludes with a preliminary draft of modern radar.

Practical applications (tutorials) making up a large part of the course.


Course level: Basic/Advanced

The course is open to engineers or senior technicians with basic knowledge of mathematics, physics, probability (basic theorems, functions), Fourier transforms and the integration of usual and exponential functions.
