Radar 101 focuses on radar fundamentals. It begins with what radar systems are, what they are for, and what their functionalities are. It proceeds to identify their various issues, their relevant requirements, their relevant physics, and the relevant theories as pertains to waveforms, RF propagation in the Earth environment, scattering from targets and clutter, detection, and measurement. It also covers the principal radar subsystems.

Radar 201 focuses on modern radar systems architectural elements, techniques, and technologies. It begins by identifying the evolving requirements from modern radar systems driven by the evolution of the threats, and points out the technological answers. It addresses specifically the elements of signal processing, Electronically Scanned Arrays (ESA) and solid state Active ESA (AESA), state of the art waveforms, and radar tracking.


Dr. Menachem Levitas -  has forty four years of experience in science and engineering, thirty six of which have consisted of direct radar and weapon systems analysis, design, and development. Throughout his tenure he has provided technical support for many shipboard and airborne radar programs in many different areas including system concept definition, electronic protection, active arrays, signal and data processing, requirement analyses, and radar phenomenology. He is a recipient of the AEGIS Excellence Award for the development of a novel radar cross-band calibration technique in support of wide-band operations for high range resolution. He has developed innovative techniques in many areas e.g., active array self-calibration and failure-compensation, array multibeam-forming, electronic protection, synthetic wide-band, knowledge-based adaptive processing, waveforms and waveform processing, and high fidelity, real-time, littoral propagation modeling. He has supported many AESA programs including the Air Force’s Ultra Reliable Radar (URR), the Atmospheric Surveillance Technology (AST), the USMC’s Ground/Air Task Oriented Radar (G/ATOR), the 3D Long Range Expeditionary Radar (3DLRR), and others. Prior to his retirement in 2013 he had been the chief scientist of Technology Service Corporation’s Washington Operations.
