Challenges in Automotive Radars - To be addressed in Radar Training

Today's auto mechanics who undergo automotive radar training are called "autotronics technicians." They must be knowledgeable about the part of the electromagnetic spectrum called millimeter waves, located between microwave and infrared waves. This frequency range covers 30 gigahertz (GHz) to  300 GHz. It allows for faster digital communications using radar and 5G. Here's a look at how millimeter waves facilitate automotive radar training and testing.

Radar Operators, Don't Get Tricked by Aircraft Flying in Formation !

When does an ATM radar actually see an aircraft, and when does it only see one target (instead of a formation of warplanes). Why does a radar sometimes miss an aircraft. Here some explanation.

NextGen 8 GHz Pulse & Doppler Radar - the Only Training Radar Allowing to Play On the Complete Signal Conversion Chain

The radar image is not the result of one single signal conversion function. It is rather the consequence of a sequence of transformations. SkyRadar's training radar allows students to play on most of the stages concurrently - and independently!

Radar Qualification for ATCO and ATSEP - Is PowerPoint Based Training Good Enough?

Often, when we discuss with trainers their methods of training supply, I learn that radar technology is taught exclusively based on PowerPoint slides. It makes me feel uncomfortable to see that for a driver's licence, or for a hairdresser's qualification, you need hands-on training, but for the people who are in charge of the security of millions of lives, PowerPoint slides should be good enough. That does not work!

Artificial Intelligence - A Short Overview of Classification Techniques for RADAR Targets through Neural Networks 2/2

A relevant technique to classify RADAR object is to use a colored 2D map representing range, speed or frequency against time and color the map with power intensity. Here we represent examples of such typical RADAR data.
