RADAR simulation

version 1.0 (922 KB) by

an early warning RADAR simulation

53 Ratings



No License

I made this simulation as a project in a course I took in RADAR basic concepts.

Short explanation: This is an early warning radar simulation.

The simulation simulates the targets behavior and calculates the expected radar return signal. The simulation works in the IF level assuming a perfect phase reconstruction by the radar. The detected targets are plotted in the main radar display.

I made allot of effort to synchronize the simulation time to the real-time.

Main new features in this version:
- CFAR mechanism.
- MTI analysis in the frequency domain.
- Stagger support.
- Matched Match Filter :)
- Analog feedbacks (which aren't very informative but I think are still cool).

I attached a word document explaining how to use the simulation.

Hi sir, thank you for file. can you send the paper about this simulation. my email is

srinivas k s

Hi Sir, I downloaded the code . When i run it shows ''error: 'gui_mainfcn' undefined near line 46 column 5''. This function is not present in your function list of the radar simulation zip file. Can you please tell me where can i find this function?

Hi, i can not download the files. do you mind if you let me know how to download these files?

hello hi

how to change the sweep direction in the code

Really good direction of this job. But how can I download the source codes? Thank you in advance.

I still not tried the simulation, and I only got a fast raed of your doc guide, but, only for time you spent on the project, I really want take you my congratulations for the great job!

I don't know how i can get the source code of the model?

Hans Huang

Good works! But there are some bugs in the program.
1. Place moutains using function is wrong, making Tags is disable.
2. The creating object of this program hasn't using a orginal waveform, if update would add this content, this program will be perfect.
All of words, this program is good. Thanks sharing of Y. Nativ.

Nice,Thanks a lot !

muhammad raza

i found this siulation very interesting and very helpful in my final semester project. i have done some modifications in it. but still it is very difficult to understand the code completely.
i'll be very grateful if any body can help me in this regard.

johan egriou

 I found out some errors in this simulation program. I would be very thankful if you let me know the keys to solve such errors. Plz send your kind message to my e-mail.,
plz response me fast

it is good but i found many errors in functions.... will any body help me to removing errors from it ...... or any one send me the correct functions and program plz i ll be vary thankful to him/her..
i m working on a task so i need quikly..... in few hours or may b in 1 day i need urgently plz help me ..... u can also mail me
hope 4 positive response

It is very interesting

i am working basically on voice controlled UGV. i dont know the reason of why do we use 10 chebyshev filters for it? do u know the reason? also help me about the RF based UGv? please i will be waiting for ur assistance........

sol miht

I am also trying to take input from hardware,Can you help me How i could get radar data to using either serial or parallel pore? pls send me at

hi, i am working on a prototype radar system and wish to take input from hardware. i just saw this simulation quiet a nice work.
can u help me out, like if i get a radar data at serial port....can it be used in this simulation???
any suggestions.....

i read this n see it is very interesting but i want to know detail about it so plz send me the deatail copy of this .plz..

i am also doing this project on radar detection and tracking using matlab.can u suggest me best books for reading or can u hlep me on that topic

yonathan nativ

hi razi,

I think I found you're problem, are you trying to run the .fig file?

please run the radarSimulation.m file and try again...

yonathan nativ

hi razi,
I'm not aware of any problem with running the code on matlab 7. Can you describe what are you doing and what is the error?

razi do

i have matlab 7 and i can't run that 'radar simulation', WHY and how can i do to make it in order with my version of matlab.

 It is really good. Everybody can see it and understand so many things from it.It is really great simulation.thank you for that.

ahmads ahmad

thank you

Hi Vasili,

I have a better version of the radar simulation with new features, better performance and a bit more readable :)

I will upload it after I will finish writing some basic documentation (probably some time this month).

Matan Naor

The Radar Simulation is very impressive! Well done!

vassili ryan

please explain me the detail of your m files,
email me at
thanks a lot



mohamed almajzoub


Julianus Partogi Panjaitan

please come to email and explain about ur simulation and m file too,soon.,little confuse.
I want to make a radar simulation ,like yours,
for my undergraduate thesis.,thanks a lot.

Julianus Partogi Panjaitan

Can I talk with u about ur simulation?
I want to make radar simulation for my final task (undergraduate),like u.
About Moving Target Indicator and others about ur simulation.I'm little confuse.???
Please reply to my email,soon.Thaks.

kurt maderal

NICE!!! the project is a greate help for my simulation subject.. ü
are there more detailed mathematical
equations so that i can understand each event that are happening during the simulation??? any mathematical theorems or equations are really appreciated... thanks..

marpaka ashrith kumar

why are there few errors in each file ??? can you plz mail me the reasons ? we are unable to run the files because of the errors ... please mail me the error corrections soon as it is very much required for my project on radars .... plz reply soooonnn

ashrith kumar marpaka

Its a very good and best resource i have ever seen i feel ... really thank you a lot and i appreciate you really . The best site where we can get what we want and where its easy to get even .......... Congrats


I have received many complaints that it is unclear how to operate the radar.
I decided to elaborate a little in the Quick Start passage I wrote.
