Title:Advanced Monopulse Processing of Phased Array Radar

Abstract: Monopulse processing is widely used in search and track radar. This tutorial covers topics such as robust adaptive techniques for target angle estimation in jamming and some advanced techniques that exploit 4-channel radar system for mainlobe cancellation, 2-target monopulse and weighted monopulse to eliminate the beam-shape loss. Further topics such as some extensions on mainlobe cancellation, multi-pulse monopulse and MIMO-monopulse will also be briefly covered. Here is the outline:

- monopulse radar

- robust adaptive monopulse

- 4-channel vs 3-channel phased array

- mainlobe cancellation

- 2-target monopulse

- weighted monopulse

- Some further topics on mainlobe cancellation

- multi-pulse monopulse and MIMO-monopulse
