Abstract : This report introduces the basics of radar technology with a strong emphasis on their application to high frequency (HF) Over-the-Horizon radar systems. It is intended for people who have to work with OTH radars, but have little experience with either radar systems or with the interaction of the radar signals with the ionosphere. The report covers the radar equation, receive and transmit antenna design, waveform analysis and signal processing.
