Webinar Overview

MIMO radars can provide orders of magnitude better angle resolution and accuracy than conventional radars, and MIMO airborne GMTI radars can provide better minimum detectable velocity (MDV). However the MIMO array can be used as a conventional array and provides the same resolution, accuracy and MDV. This webinar will provide physical insight into the MIMO radar, conventional equivalents and tradeoffs between the two. Topics will include: 

• Architecture of the transmit and receive arrays
• Performance of the MIMO radar, including resolution, accuracy and grating lobes
• The MIMO array as a conventional radar and the resulting performance
• Waveform requirements for the MIMO and conventional radars
• The MIMO architecture for GMTI and resulting performance: minimum detectable velocity, coherent dwell time, aperture size
• Show that MIMO array has no better barrage jammer, repeater jammer or hot clutter jammer cancellation than its conventional equivalent
• Signal processing load for MIMO array can be significant larger than its conventional equivalent
