Introduction to Radar Signals and Systems

This article is part of a series on Radar Signals and Systems. I intend to cover the following topics in this series.

Basics of Radar

  1. Radio wave propagation

2. Continuous wave (CW) Radar : The simplest of all Radars. Provides information about relative velocity thanks to Doppler effect. There are a number of applications where relative velocity is sufficient.

3. Frequency modulated CW (FMCW) Radar: CW radar, but modulated in frequency. Introduces range measurement capability
