Introduction to Radar Systems

The sequential lobing radar, described in Lecture 9, uses a time sequence of beams directed around the track location. (Image by MIT Lincoln Laboratory. Used with permission)

Course Description

This set of 10 lectures (about 11+ hours in duration) was excerpted from a three-day course developed at MIT Lincoln Laboratory to provide an understanding of radar systems concepts and technologies to military officers and DoD civilians involved in radar systems development, acquisition, and related fields. That three-day program consists of a mixture of lectures, demonstrations, laboratory sessions, and tours.
