Description

## Objective:

The course objective is to provide intermediate Technical ELINT signals analysts with advanced Technical ELINT signals analysis concepts and skills; modulation principles; radar hardware concepts; Digital Signal Processing concepts; the derivation and applications of the radar range equation; radar modeling techniques; and advanced radar applications.

## Learning Outcomes:

• Apply statistical modeling and applications to RADAR, including the Uniform Probability Density Function, standard deviation, a Gaussian curve and Standard Gaussian Distribution Table to characterize RADAR signals
• Describe the purposes and capabilities of intrapulse, interpulse, and frequency modulation
• Survey different types of antennas to determine the gain/directivity of antennas and radiation patterns
• Describe how millile guidance systems works
• Calculate basic math computations and apply math concepts to ELINT analysis problems
• Explain analog and digital signal processing steps and applications, including the Fourier series and Fourier Transform, use of filters, and digitizing theory and techniques
• Explain the use and importance of different components of a radar hardware system, including transmitters, receivers, modulators, transmission lines, oscillators, and amplifiers
