This course provides an introduction to the tactical fighter aircraft and the mode signal processing used for surveillance and target acquisition.
One of the missions of a tactical, multi-mode airborne fire-control radar system is to provide Air-to-Air (A/A) mapping, surveillance, target detection and tracking in support of the fighter aircraft weapon system. During this course we will present the mode concepts and digital signal processing techniques involved in modern airborne radar target detection in presence of clutter and other interferences. Radar waveforms (or modes) treated include continuous wave (CW), high pulse repetition frequency (HPRF) and medium pulse repetition frequency (MPRF). New Low Probability of Intercept (LPI) waveforms are also discussed.
In addition, we will examine and discuss the following topics during this course:
+ Range-gated HPRF including coincident ranging concepts
+ Development of velocity search, range-while-search and track-while-scan
+ Practical implementation and signal processing associated with each mode
+ Advantages and limitations of each mode
+ Military applications of these modes will also be discussed including applications in electronic warfare features.
