Lidar VS Radar VS Camera

In the modern age, humans have started drifting away from not relying too much on their eyes and side mirrors to drive their vehicles anymore. Autonomous or self-driving vehicles have started taking the world by storm and are the future. It is common knowledge that top car manufacturing companies like Telsa and Waymo have embraced…

AESA vs. Pulsed Doppler vs. Phased Array vs. PESA Radar

AESA Radar vs. Pulsed Doppler Technological advancements in the 1980s resulted in the invention of the Pulse-Doppler radar which had the capabilities of tracking while scanning. This feature enabled the radar to track specific targets, while also being alert for the possible entry of other objects. The bad news is that pulse-Doppler radars are also…

Active Radar vs. Passive Radar

Radar (Radio Detecting and Ranging) systems and systems that are designed to detect objects and to evaluate the distance between the objects and a single antenna or a group of antennas. Both active and passive radars have advantages, and people prefer using either of them for different reasons. As they have advantages, they also have…

Broadband marine radar systems

Broadband marine radar systems operate using a continuous transmission of the microwaves as opposed to the common traditional method of pulse transmission. How it works: Radar works on a simple principle of reflection. Radar systems contain transmitters that transmit microwaves that travel towards an object and hit the object at a certain angle and then…

What is Marine Doppler radar?

A Doppler radar is a specialized radar that employs the use of Doppler Effect to produce velocity data on objects that are positioned at a certain distance. This is achieved by bouncing a microwave signal off from a desired target and then calculating how the motion of the object has affected or altered the frequency…

Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitter Principle

How it works Guided Wave Radar is also known as the Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) or in simpler terms, micro-impulse radar. When guided wave radar unit is being installed, the GWR sensor or gauge is usually mounted on top of a tank or chamber while the probe is extended to the full depth of the…

What does RADAR stand for?

RADAR stands for Radio Detection and Ranging. As the name suggests, RADAR transmission is dependent on the use of radio signals to transmit data. RADAR systems work by sending or relaying electromagnetic waves much like wireless networks or computer networks. The radio signals from RADAR systems are sent out as short pulses and as they…
