Simulating Radar Signals for Meaningful Radar Warning Receiver Tests
Wednesday, May 22, 2019
8am PT / 11am ET
Testing state-of-the art radar warning equipment with adequate RF and microwave signals is a challenging task for radar engineers. Generating test signals in a lab that are similar to a real-life RF environment is considered a supreme discipline when evaluating advanced radars. A scenario for testing radar warning receivers (RWR) can easily contain many highly mobile emitters that are capable of mode changes, many interfering signals and a moving multi-channel receiver. Today, there are intuitive and easy-to-use software tools available that take a lot of work off the hands of radar engineers.
In this seminar, you will learn how to:
- Create radar scenarios ranging from simple pulses to the most demanding emitter scenarios using PC software
- Generate complex radar signals with off-the-shelf vector signal generators
- Increase flexibility during radar simulation by streaming pulse descriptor words (PDW)
