Radar evaluation is perhaps one of the most exhaustive, complex, and challenging types of testing that the flight test engineer will encounter. As with all other avionics and weapons systems, it is imperative that the evaluator possess a basic knowledge of radar and an indepth knowledge of the system under test. The purpose of this section is not to repeat what is contained in the aforementioned references. Radar theory is covered only to make the test procedures understandable. This section will review radar fundamentals, identify radar modes of operation, examine the methods of test for these modes, and address any special test considerations.
