Radar & Sensors
Radar systems were developed during the Second World War to use radio waves to determine range, altitude, direction and speed of both moving and fixed objects. Today, the use of radar is highly diverse from air traffic control, electronic warfare and air-defense systems through to vehicle parking, weather monitoring and ground-penetrating radar for geological observation.
These systems make use of complex sensors in order to transmit and receive signals that provide a means to derive critical information about their environment. Digital signal processing algorithms are a key component of these systems and are used to separate the desired information from the interference or noise.
