Radar Ambiguities - Knowing if a Target Is Coming or Going
Sept. 9 | 2-3 p.m. EDT (18:00 - 19:00 UTC)
Radar systems are able to detect, track, and measure minuscule targets at stupendous ranges. One of the techniques exploited to achieve this is the combination of multiple returns from a single target in a manner similar to that used when sampling signals. But as seen in a previous webinar, sampling is linked to ambiguities - cases where the true properties of a signal cannot be unambiguously determined - and the same is true of radar systems.
Range and Doppler ambiguities have different underlying causes and place conflicting requirements on a radar system. The result is that it is often impossible to remove all ambiguities, especially in cases such as airborne radar where almost everything - including the earth - is moving relative to the radar. The challenges caused by ambiguities in airborne radar are seen by the fact that look-down/shoot-down systems only became operational after the development of digital computers.
This webinar will explore mechanisms underlying range and Doppler ambiguities in radar, along with the effects such as blind ranges and velocities. The concept of low-, medium-, and high-PRF operation will be explored along with approaches to resolving ambiguities.

Are you enjoying our From the Crows’ Nest podcast? Over the last several episodes, a frequent topic of conversation on our podcast focused on modular open systems architecture (MOSA) and its role in changing the defense electronics market and how we develop new technology.
In a new podcast feature, you can now access periodic bonus material – additional interviews and content on issues that our shaping our EW community. In this bonus segment, Ken Miller, Director of Advocacy and Outreach, and host of From the Crows’ Nest, sits down with Mr. Dennis Neel, Senior Director, Integrated Digital Systems at Northrop Grumman Corporation, to discuss how industry is adapting to this trend toward MOSA and multi-function systems.
AOC thanks Northrop Grumman for its continued support for our new podcast initiative. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Ken Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Australian Chapter of the Association of Old Crows is pleased to announce the EW Australia 2021 Brisbane Symposium. Being held at Customs House in Brisbane on Wednesday 13 October 2021, this full day thought leadership symposium will focus on: “ADF Information Dominance – Building a Resilient Sovereign Capability”. Attendees will hear Defence and civilian speakers on EW, IO, and Cyber, while being able to maintain connections and expand networks within the Australian EW, IO, and Cyber Defence community. The speaker list is being finalized with further details to be released shortly. For further information, visit oldcrows.org.au.

The military has relied heavily on contractors for highly technical work to develop software for cyber operators. But the Army, Navy and Marine Corps have found that in-house engineers and tool developers can quickly create mission capabilities to improve threat response times and mission outcomes.
