DATASHEET Radar Systems with AWR Software Software technologies and library support simulation and modeling of radar systems Radar systems can be classified as ground-based, airborne, space-borne, or ship-based as well as by frequency band, antenna, or waveform type. Additionally, functionality can vary from tracking to early warning, to over the horizon, and more. The Cadence ® AWR Design Environment ® platform for radar system design enables detailed behavioral modeling of the RF and signal processing of a radar system, together with 3D antenna patterns derived from synthesis or measurement. Third-party links to custom signal processing algorithms and test and measurement (T&M) instruments allow a device under test (DUT) to be incorporated into the simulation, where real-world signals can be captured or an impaired signal synthesized from a point in the simulated system. Radar Advantage Radar systems are complex and depend heavily on signal processing algorithms to mitigate the effects of noise and interference. This places heavy demands on the tool chain and therefore requires a platform that supports simulation, verification, and models for signal generation, trans- mission, antenna, T/R switching, clutter, noise, jamming, receiving, signal processing, and measurements. The Cadence AWR ® Visual System Simulator™ (VSS) software for radar systems design supports all of this, from algorithm modeling all the way through to debugging environment via languages such as C++, LabVIEW, MATLAB, and VBA.
