IEEE AES Society: Cognitive Radar: From Theory to Practice

August 2, 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Abstract –

This lecture is a condensed version of the tutorial “Cognitive Processing for Radar Systems: From Theory to Practice” given by Graeme Smith and Kristine Bell at the 2016 IEEE Intl. Radar Conference.


The lecture provides an introduction to cognitive processing for radar systems. We attempt to answer the question How does one build a cognitive radar? The emphasis is placed on how the emerging theories can be taken and applied in practice. The meaning of cognition, from an engineering perspective, is discussed and a case is made as to why future radar systems need to be cognitive. A mathematically rigorous, generalized cognitive framework is introduced and the methods by which the generalized framework can be instantiated for specific applications are presented. The cognitive algorithm development process, which includes simulation, testing on previously collected data, and real-time experimentation, is discussed. Finally, design requirements for an experimental radar are proposed, and the results we have achieved on the Ohio State University (OSU) Cognitive Radar Engineering Workspace (CREW) are presented.
