This online engineering PDH course provides a basic understanding of the fundamental principles, concepts and definitions of radar systems.
The term Radar is an acronym made up of the words radio detection and ranging. The term is used to refer to electronic equipment that detect the presence, direction, height, and distance of objects by using reflected electromagnetic energy.
Modern radar systems are used for early detection of surface or air objects and provide extremely accurate information on distance, direction, height, and speed of the objects. Radar is also used to guide missiles to targets and direct the firing of gun systems. Other types of radar provide long-distance surveillance and navigation information.
This 5 PDH online course is applicable to electrical, instrumentation and communication engineers, as well as other technical personnel interested in gaining a better understanding about radar principles.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Learning about range, bearing, and altitude in relation to radar systems
- Understanding how pulse width, peak power, and beam width affect radar performance
- Learning about the factors that affect radar accuracy
- Understanding the function, principles of operation, and interrelationships of the basic units of a radar system
- Familiarizing with the classifications of radar systems
- Understanding the operation of CW, pulse, and Doppler radar systems
