This thesis is concerned with the use of simulation in the teaching of radar signal processing RSP. The aspects of RSP to be investigated and simulated are the development of the DFT as a filter bank for radar applications, filter sidelobe reduction by the use of weighted DFT doppler filter banks and the generation of pulse compression coding schemes under doppler conditions. Simulation programs have been written in MATLAB for the above processes. These simulations are cost effective, convenient to use and easy to reproduce since they are run on personal computers that are readily available to students. This provides a learning environment which can not be achieved by traditional methods alone and compliments classroom teaching. In particular it aids the student by removing a major computational burden which allows the student to explore the non-trivial real world problems which he could not do before.
