EGR 1202 Introduction to Radar

Capabilities and limitations of radar, the performance and implementation of its critical sub-systems and the requirements particular radars must meet in order to perform common Measurement and Signature Intelligence (MASINT) and Advanced Geospatial Intelligence (AGI) missions (e.g. Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), Line of Sight and Over the Horizon). Students will become conversant in Radar and able to exploit its use in a variety of potential intelligence tasks with a basic knowledge enabling them to predict the expected performance of a radar system. Two classroom, two lab hours per week.
