Why is the FFT Plot of a pulsed-Doppler radar mirrored? (Video)

When it comes to radar, the FFT (Fast-Fourier Transform) is used to convert time domain signals into frequencies. An example of its use is for converting the dual channels of a pulse-Doppler radar from time domain into range-Doppler data.

Understanding Radar Antenna Beams, Half Power Beam Width (HPBW) and First Null Beam Width (FNBW)

Everyone knows what an antenna is when they see one and many people generally understand its purpose. But beyond that the science of wireless communication is often left to IT specialists and engineers. It helps to tell yourself circular graphs aren't really that overwhelming. Here are the basics for a more technical understanding of antenna beams and how they work.

What is machine learning: the ID3 Classifier

The ID3 - or ID3 (Iterative Dichotomiser 3) - is a supervised classifier based on decision tree learning methodology. The ID3 classifier generates a decision tree from a set of data (the training data) which can be used to classify new data.

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!
