Technical Education Webinar Series
Radar Fundamentals II – Pulse Doppler Radar
Date & Time:
October 16, 2012; 8 AM PT/ 11 AM ET/ 3 PM UTC
The second webinar in this series will present an overview of coherent radar, which forms the basis for Pulse Doppler Radar. The waveforms associated with a train of coherent pulses will be analyzed in both the time and frequency domains. The Doppler effect will be explained and typical Doppler shift values for airborne targets will be determined. Synchronous detection and the roles of the in-phase and quadrature channels will be presented, along with the Doppler filter banks. The effects of pulse width, pulse repetition frequency, and sampling time on the system will be explained.
Dr. Joey R. Bray, Associate Professor, Dept of ECE, Royal Military College of Canada
Joey R. Bray received the B.A.Sc. and M.A.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Ottawa, Canada, in 1995 and 1998, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada in 2003. In 2003 he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Royal Military College of Canada (RMCC), Kingston, Ontario, Canada, where he is currently an Associate Professor. During his sabbatical leave from 2010 to 2011, he was a Visiting Research Associate at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University of Manchester, U.K. Dr. Bray teaches courses in electromagnetics, microwave engineering, and antenna theory, and is currently developing a radar and electronic warfare course at RMCC. Dr. Bray received the Young Scientist Award in 2005 from the International Union of Radio Science (URSI). He is a Licensed Professional Engineer in the Province of Ontario and a member of the IEEE. His current research activities include radar cross section measurements, radar cross section reduction, and radar detection of detonators, microwave passives integration, and ferrite devices.
