Accelerating the pace of engineering and science

Modeling and Simulating Radar Systems Using MATLAB and Simulink

Jason Bryan, MathWorks

Radar system design requires multi-domain expertise, mixed-signal modeling and effective paths to implementation.  In this webinar we will show how Simulink can be used to model a multi-domain radar system design to improve overall workflow efficiency.  We will explore the components of the system such as waveform generation, RF receiver front end, and detection algorithms.  A summary of paths to implementation will also be included.  Detailed agenda includes:

• Multi-domain modeling and simulation
• Basic modeling techniques in Simulink
• Component specification with Phased Array System Toolbox
• Using RF specifications and network parameter measurements in Simulink models
• Paths to implementation on FPGAs and DSPs
