Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


After World War II radar has been increasingly used as an integral part of complex applications such as air-traffic control, reconnaissance and surveillance, navigation and weather, and missile targeting and defense. Analysis of radars systems for such applications requires representing the radar operation and performance in the context of the overall system and the external environment. The radar performance must be evaluated, and the impact of radar operation on system performance must be quantified. The major objective of this paper is to present the design/development and implementation of the automated end-to-end functional radar simulation software package. Using the database driven approach in the software development, this paper also discusses how the software package can be changed and used to solve problems in any other engineering and technology curricula. Finally, this paper describes how this software package developed in MATLAB can be converted into a C/C++ source code and then compiled the source code into a stand-alone executable system.
