RADAR simulation

an early warning RADAR simulation

| Watch this File

File Information

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.

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!

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.

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.

11 Oct 2010 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

04 Oct 2010 faisal shaikh

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

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........

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.....

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...

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?

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.

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).

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.

09 Oct 2007 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.

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..

06 Jan 2007 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

05 Jan 2007 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.
