Radar Engineering

N.S. : (1) Question NO.1is compulsory.

 .(2) Attemptany four questionsfrom remaining six questions.


1. (a) Explain the factors which govern the pulse repetation frequency.

(b) Explain in brief the various system losses in the radar.

(c) Explain the mechanism of range tracking of a moving target.

(d) Explain in brief about M.F.C.W. radar.


2. (a) Explain the methods for the integration of radarpulses to improve detection. Define the term integration improvement factor. How does their, factor affect the radar range equation?

 (b) Describe the chief characteristics of the radar echo from a target when its radar cross-section is in the (a) Rayleigh region; (b) Resonance region and (c) in the optical region.


3. (a) What do you mean by RCS fluctuations? Explain different Swerlings model  for RCS fluctuations.

 (b) What do you understand by the ter.m clutter? Explain the different types of radar clutter. Enumerate the properties of sea and land clutter.


4. (a) State the factors which influence the bandwidth of a radar receiver. Write down the advantages of large bandwidth.
