MIMO Radar – Demystified
Date: February 28, 2013
Time: 8:00 AM PT/ 11:00 AM ET/ 4:00 PM UTC
Dr. Eli Brookner, Principal Engineering Fellow,Raytheon Company
Rohde & Schwarz
This webinar will explain Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) in simple terms and detail its performance advantages and disadvantages. Contrary to claims, MIMO does not provide an order of magnitude or better angle resolution and accuracy than conventional arrays. Instead, it is about the same. MIMO radar makes sense for combining radars for increased sensitivity. This webinar will also show how useful MIMO is and how it allows the use of a 29% smaller antenna while maintaining angle accuracy.
Dr. Eli Brookner received his MEE and DrSc from Columbia University ’55 and ’62; BEE from CCNY, ’53.
