Radar and Electronic Warfare
Performance precision and insight for your radar test and electronic warfare design.
Designing effective electronic countermeasures for radar and electronic warfare threats is a difficult and demanding task. From wideband radar implementations to surveillance and band clearing, these applications require greater levels of vigilance each day. Tektronix content and tools provides the expertise and innovative solutions to help you meet the challenge. Learn more about how to see aspects of your signals that were previously invisible and how to recreate stimuli and environmental factors with impressive fidelity, giving you the insight to increase the capabilities of your systems, shorten your design cycle and build confidence in your final design.
While radar technology was initially focused on military and commercial aviation applications, today there are many commercial applications. This application note covers the basics of modern radar applications from military to commercial use in automotive design. This application note also dives deeper into pulsed radar measurements, as well as the lifecycle of radar measurement tasks.
Analyzing Radar Signals Primer
The transient nature of radar pulses combined with modern pulse compression schemes often demand carefully designed test setups. This Primer will cover measurements methods, choosing your measurement parameters, how to find the pulse, estimating the carrier frequency and phase, timing measurements, frequency and phase measurements and chirp measurements.
Creating Signals That Look Real to Radar
What's the best solution to help you create complex radar test signals at the highest frequencies? Our new application note, “Radar Signal Generation with a High-Performance AWG,” answers that question and explains much more.

This technical brief provides an overview of the RFXpress software for the AWG Series arbitrary waveform generators, including optional plug-ins for Radar and WiMedia UWB applications.
|Amplitude Correction for Impulse Response Measurement of Radar PulsesThis technical paper discusses the implementation of amplitude correct and the elimination of amplitude errors in the (IPR) impulse response measurement. This measurement can be performed using a signal analyzer on the RF output of a radar while using the radar’s own chirp as the internal measurement reference.|
|Calibrate+ Characterize and Emulate systems using RFXpress® in AWG SeriesSystem designers and device manufacturers so long have been using one set of instruments for creating digitally modulated RF signals for testing their device, and another set of instruments to characterize their system. With high bandwidth and high sampling rate Tektronix AWG7122B along with RFXpress® software, test signals and device characterization can now be done with one set of general purpose instruments up to 9.6 GHz.|
