Radar systems are multidomain, containing both digital and analog/RF components. Because of this complexity, the debugging and testing process for a fully integrated radar system often uncovers multiple design errors. When full system test is postponed until the late stages of hardware implementation, the design updates required to fix errors are extremely expensive.
Using MATLAB® and Simulink®, you can perform full radar system design in a single multidomain simulation environment, enabling you to detect and fix design errors before final hardware implementation. You can automatically generate code to deploy your radar system directly to DSP and FPGA hardware.
To accelerate development, MATLAB also provides libraries of algorithms such as match filtering, adaptive beamforming, target detection, space-time adaptive processing, clutter modeling, and direction of arrival estimation; in addition to an extensive set of communications and signal processing tools for radar system design.
