ET4169 Microwaves, radar & remote sensing

Topics: Introduction to microwave systems and radar; foundation for further courses on radar and remote sensing
The aim of this course is to introduce students to microwave wireless systems in general and to the radar and microwave remote sensing in particular. The course will lay foundations for the further course on radar and remote sensing. At the same time the course supports understanding of the physical layer in mobile and wireless communications.

The course consists of three major parts. In Part 1 the fundamental issues related to generation, propagation and scattering of microwaves are discussed. Part 2 of the course is dedicated to fundamentals of radar and radar systems. In part 3 such important applications of radars as atmospheric remote sensing and Earth observation are discussed. Discussion on remote sensing general principles is complemented by an analysis of practical systems designed and implemented at TU Delft.
