When calculating profiles of radar reflectivity based on model hydrometeor occurrence, the ARM simulator takes into consideration the minimum sensitivity of the ARM radar, as well as the saturation of the radar receiver. Simulated reflectivity values below the radar sensitivity [modeled as Eq.
For example, expenditures on factors like parts, labor and packaging for a radar receiver shipped to a depot would exceed $240,000, said Don Fincham, COMFRC Aviation Maintenance and Material Department Level II Readiness coordinator.
The ESCORT MAX Ci features a front radar receiver and front laser shifters protecting drivers against all speed monitoring devices.
Noticeably, we have also implemented a complementary technique aiming at the absolute calibration of dual-polarization receivers: in order to maximize the signal-to-noise ratio, the radar receiver has to be offline for a few minutes during the tracking of the Sun in order to have the antenna beam axis pointing towards the center of the Sun [17].
Figure 1 depicts the structure of the MIMO radar receiver in a CPI.
For radar processing, it can be assumed that the transmitted signal is known at the radar receiver. For communication processing, the modulation type is perfectly known to the communication terminal.

The authors have organized the main body of their text in eighteen chapters devoted to radar receiver configuration, phased array antenna basics, waveform coding, and a wide variety of other related subjects.
"In the '60s and '70s, I had to read many British papers on radar receiver design, and found them very hard to follow.
In this paper, the detectability of the radar system with one sky-wave radar transmitter and one surface-wave radar receiver is studied.
Recovery of the phase of the received signal, with reference to the emitted signal, is a key process in radar receiver designs and permits ranging to the scattering body as described below in (1) and (2).
