Radar System Performance Modeling

This course provides and explains equations, computational methods and data for modeling radar performance at the system level, and provides insight on how to use the models in system analysis. It is intended for system analysts involved in analyzing systems that include radars, modelers and programmers involved in simulating performance of radars in systems, and radar system analysts and designers.

G. Richard Curry

G. Richard Curry is a consultant in radar system applications with extensive experience in radar system analysis and simulation, radar design and testing, military R&D planning and technology assessment, and research management. He led analysis of radar system applications in military systems at Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), and at General Research Corporation (GRC). Prior to that, he analyzed and designed surveillance and tracking radars for the Raytheon Company, performed radar engineering for ballistic missile range testing at Kwajalein, and developed radar signal processing techniques at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. He served in the U. S. Navy as an Electronics Officer. Mr. Curry received B. S. degrees in electrical engineering and mathematics from the University of Michigan, and an M. S. degree in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is a member of the Radar System Panel of the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society, and author of the book: “Radar Systems Performance Modeling”, now in its Second Edition.
