Radar Communications Training Course Description

Radar Communications Training Course earns its price with its in-depth coverage of important aspects of radar communications systems including engineering and operations. RAdio Detection And Ranging (RADAR) detects and tracks objects (targets) at considerable distances. The basic operation principle behind radar is very simple: extremely short bursts of radio energy (traveling at the speed of light or 300,000 km/s) are transmitted, reflected off a target and then returned as an echo.
