Pulsed RADAR signal generation and measurements
Current Radar development is focusing the area of signal processing. This is taken into account by this educational note, where the R&S© SMW / SMBV instruments on the transmitter side and R&S© / FSV instruments on the receiver side are combined to a closed loop Radar system, performing radar detection by means of pulse compression and digital signal processing. Appropriate R&S software tools for such applications are described as well as the interface between the tools and the test instruments.
