radar resolution
Range resolution as a function of a pulse width. The smaller the beam width, the better would be the range resolution.

Radar resolution in azimuth is a function of beam width. Narrower the beam, better is the resolution.
The ability to distinguish between two closely spaced targets. The distance between two resolvable targets must be defined in each of the dimensions of measurement, which typically for a radar are range, azimuth, elevation, and velocity. Range resolution is determined by pulse width, whereas angular resolution is dependent on antenna-beam width. Velocity resolution is determined by Doppler processing.

As for modern forecasting, Hausen said the recent launch of the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) East satellite allows for higher radar resolution and the ability to map lightning density.
The key advantages of our solution are: 94 GHz offers unparalleled radar resolution Only electronically scanning antenna (with no moving parts, solid state) at 94GHz in the world Very small and compact (only 20cm diameter) Very wide scanning angles (up to 60 degrees) Can scan in both elevation and azimuth Can also track (monopulse) no need for two radar systems Less expensive to manufacture Very low power consumption Easy to control using near DC voltages The wider security radar market is estimated to be valued at $11.
This experiment illustrates CS theory would allow the implementation of wide-swath modes without reducing the resolution and have an enormous potential application in improving radar resolution.
The newly invented magnetron's higher frequencies have the potential to improve radar resolution.
While two-dimensional radar resolution is measured in feet, the laser-radar resolution is measured in fractions of an inch.
To complement this software package, the reader should also consult the companion text Radar Resolution and Complex Image Analysis and Theory and Practice of Radar Target Identification, available through Artech House, for the theory and more complete explanations.
Using simple controls within the software, the digital radar image on the PC screen can be set to your own color specifications and the radar resolution can be set as high as 1024 x 1024," commented Shepard Tucker, Director of Sales and Marketing.
I believe refers to what is usually described as the radar resolution cell (RRC) as it is a form of radar that we are dealing with.
Radar resolution in range, angle and Doppler speed is determined by the radar pulsewidth, beamwidth and coherent integration bandwidth, respectively.
You will recall from previous columns that the radar resolution cell is the area within which the radar cannot distinguish multiple targets.
Last month's tutorial went into some detail on the nature of the radar resolution cell and covered the formation- and blinking-jamming techniques.
