Pulse stability measurement of radar signals

Performance measurements with complex burst and pulse sequences

Webinar: Pulse stability measurement of radar signals

With the arrival of sophisticated radar and communication systems, phase noise has become the most important factor engineers focus on during the design and validation phase. Phase stability is the key parameter for defining target acquisition in radars, spectral integrity in communication systems and precision beam steering capabilities in active electronic scanned array antennas (AESA).

In this webinar, we take a look at real-life examples of how to do performance measurements with complex burst and pulse sequences with the market leading R&S®FSWP phase noise analyzers.

In this webinar, you will learn more about:

  • Clutter Environments, Doppler Effects and Doppler Processing
  • Sources of Pulse-to-pulse instability and effects on processing
  • Pulse-to-pulse stability measurements

Dr. Wolfgang Wendler studied physics at the University of Bayreuth and did his PhD thesis in 1996 on nuclear magnetic properties of Pt and Al. He joined Rohde & Schwarz in 2004 as product manager for signal and spectrum analyzers with the focus on high end measurement applications. Beside defining analysis tools for digitally modulated signals for wireless applications like WLAN he focused on measurement tools for highly accurate phase noise, noise figure or pulse measurements. As an expert for advanced A&D applications of spectrum analyzers he influenced the development of new product features and application software of modern high end phase noise testers or signal and spectrum analyzers
