Radar signal polarization and complex scattering Radar cross section

Radar signal polarization and complex scattering Radar cross section

Polarized signals in Radar applications help obtain better information about the radar target.  Different target geometries and material characteristics respond differently to polarized signals. Questions have been raised about how STK handles polarized signals and complex scattering RCS for targets. … Continue reading

STK Radar evolution: Search/Track mode

Figure 3: Radar antenna gain pattern

System Tool Kit’s (STK)’s Radar module development started in 1997 with a need to assess radar system performance under highly dynamic scenarios for air, space and surface-based objects. The dynamics of a scenario dictate the changing geometries (such as positions, … Continue reading
