European School of Antennas/EuMA Courses on Microwaves "All Digital Radar System Engineering"

The ESoA Course "All Digital Radar System Engineering" has been postponed to March 2022, due to the newest developments and travel restrictions regarding COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2). We will keep all of you informed about the situation and announce the new date on this website.

Lecture Description

In the last 10 to 20 years, radar is undergoing two major trends. First, near range radars for applications from automotive to industrial are growing enormously with the potential to pass military and space radar regarding the job market for radar engineers. Second modern radars in all applications become more digital which enables many new techniques to improve performance.

The ESoA / EuCoM course „All Digital Radar System Engineering“ covers state of the art radar technologies with a focus on modern digital radars. The course starts with an introduction to the radar basics, like propagation, radar equation, polarimetry, analysis of radar cross section (RCS) of targets, including RCS measurement a.s.o. After that the radar modulation schemes (mainly chirp-sequence, OFDM & PN) are discussed in detail including deep insights on system design. In cooperation with Bosch special aspects on automotive radar are presented including many real world examples and demos. The last part of the course has a strong focus on the antenna system of the radar. It is dedicated to electronic/digital beamforming and modern synthetic aperture radar technologies for imaging. Thereby a cooperation with the German Aerospace Center (DLR) provides deep insights in state of the art real world systems.

This ESoA/EuCoM course is co-organised by EurAAP and EuMA.


Targeted Participants

The course is targeted to PhD students, researchers, scientists and engineers interested in Radar System Engineering.
