Radar is an important sensor characterized by day/night all-weather operation capability. A key-feature of radar is the ability of reconnaissance, surveillance of a wide area with target acquisition (RSTA). In addition it offers the potential of moving target detection via Doppler discrimination, and target classification via imaging (SAR or ISAR) or polarimetric and other techniques. New developments on radar technology has improved the performance on several fields, e.g. on electronic countermeasures (ECM). This terrain has been addressed with adaptive processing, low sidelobe antennas, and mainlobe cancellation techniques. The increasing capabilities of coherent, programmable sources, digital signal processing, and computing have allowed implementation of hardware and algorithms for improving the overall performance. Low frequency foliage penetration (FOPEN) systems take advantage of programmable sources to reduce interference to other electronic equipment in the VHF and UHF bands. Advanced signal processing and capable computers are key in FOPEN SAR, UWB target detection and recognition, bistatic systems for counter-stealth, and STAP for MTI in moving radar platforms. Advances in target recognition remain key for reduction of fratricide. This improvement has been provided by increased microwave and digital-processing components.

In this Lecture Series advanced radar techniques, including bi- and multistatic systems, target detection and tracking methods, and fundamentals of STAP, and other aspects of advanced radar systems will be covered.
