Figure 4-7.Conversion of power in dBm to watts (average).
You can convert average power to peak power by dividing average power by the duty cycle of the
radar. If the radar in the above example has a duty cycle of 0.001, then the peak power can be calculated
with the following formula:
Many radar systems have charts available to convert average power to peak power.
Q5. The peak power of a radar depends on the interrelationship of what other factors?
Q6. Transmitter power readings are most often referenced to what power level?
RECEIVER PERFORMANCE CHECKS
The performance of a radar receiver is determined by several factors, most of which are established
in the design engineering of the equipment. In the paragraphs that follow, factors concerned with
