Radar Software Development

Course Description

Become knowledgeable in the implementation of all major radar software functions — front-end and back-end — and the process for developing the software required for an operational system. Obtain a good understanding of the history of radar software technology and how it applies to developing a new application or upgrading an existing system. The Radar Software Development course will address the entire radar software domain and describe proven approaches and functional implementations for hard real-time execution, soft real-time execution, and batch and offline processing threads.
