This chapter covers a variety of radar data processing algorithms used by phased-array radars (PARs). These algorithms are usually implemented in software, many of them in a mission application computer program and others in areas such as signal processing and alignment and calibration software. Unlike the previous chapters that treat topics covered in many theory and application texts, these topics are not usually discussed in radar systems books. They are often covered in technical journal papers and related literature, but not in a unified treatment. The objective of this chapter is to collect these data processing algorithms in one place, organized by algorithm purpose and type.
