COURSE # ROO-419

AESA Radar


... most informative coverage of Active Electrically-Scanned Aperture (AESA) based radar systems, the enabling technologies and future trends...


This course, offered in either a three- or four-day format, is designed to provide a thorough understanding of the technologies, designs and capabilities of Active Electrically-Scanned (AESA) radar. The specific focus of this course is on setting solid foundations of the engineering principles, systems integration, mission operations, and support of combat aircraft, naval vessels and air/missile defense systems employing AESA radars.

AESA radar has revolutionized the performance, operational flexibility and resilience of radars in many diverse applications. Important advances include the use of Gallium Nitride-based amplifiers for improved transmit power, noise figure, stability and thermal properties. Other key technologies include sophisticated pulse compression waveforms, digital beamforming, digital receivers/exciters, and adaptive power management. New software methods enable effective design, analysis and operation of these complex systems.

AESA radars are becoming far more cost/effective for modern military and commercial applications, due to better producibility of power-efficient Transmit/Receive modules and the flexibility afforded by software-defined waveforms and power management.

AESA provides enormous advantages over mechanically-scanned and passive electronically scanned radars:
