Paper Abstract

This paper provides a tutorial introduction to the principles of radar for persons with experience in optics but with little or no knowledge of radar. A typical radar system is described and the radar range equation is developed. The detection of signals embedded in a noise environment, the detection of target signals in a clutter environment, and the basic principles of radar antenna theory are discussed.
