MTE 7203 Radar System Engineering & Design

Course Description: This course discusses the fundamental principles behind the design and operation of Radar systems for different applications. It is intended to make the student understand the principles of Radar and its use in military and civilian environment and give them them familiarity with navigational aids available for navigation of aircrafts and ships. !MS: 1. To derive and discuss the Range equation and the nature of detection. 2. To apply doppler principle to radars and hence detect moving targets, cluster, also to understand tracking radars . To refresh principles of antennas and propagation as related to radars, also study of transmitters and receivers. Detai"ed Course Content:

Teac#ing and $earning %attern

The teaching of students will be conducted through lectures, tutorials, short classroom e=ercises, case studies, group discussions among the students and proDects aimed at solving real life problems. The lecture material will be availed to the students in advance to enable them have prior reading. /olving real life problems in each theme or a number of topics will enhance the studentsE understanding of the problem based learning techniques.

ssessment met#od
$ssessment will be done through coursework which will include assignments, class room and take home tests, proDect work and presentations and a written e=amination. 1ourse work will carry a total of 5CF and written e=amination carries >CF. 1oursework marks will be divided into* $ssignments ;F, Tests 1CF and -racticalGproDect 3ork 2;F.
