Radar system design is a complex, multi-domain challenge. As phased array antennas are used in new designs, an extended set of capabilities including electronic beam steering and spatial signal processing techniques are possible. These added capabilities come with a corresponding increase in system level complexity. In addition, growing levels of interference sources due to a crowded RF spectrum, as well as smaller cross-section targets contribute to the increased challenge of achieving desired radar performance levels.
