Radio detection and ranging, an object detection system using radio waves

See the Radar article for a general history of radar


  • Doppler radar - a radar that makes use of the Doppler effect to measure velocity at a distance
  • Ground penetrating radar - or GPR, a geophysical method that uses radar pulses to image the subsurface of the Earth
  • Laser radar - also called "LADAR," for Light Detection And Ranging, a system that uses light or lasers to measure the distance to an object
  • Meteorological radar - radar used to detect climatological phenomena
  • Millimeter wave radar - or Extremely High Frequency radar, for radar that uses electromagnetic waves in the highest radio frequency band (from 30 to 300 GHz
  • Passive radar - radars that detect objects by processing reflections from non-cooperating sources of illumination available in the wider environment
  • Radar applications - potential uses of radar
  • Radar clutter - unwanted echoes and returns in a radar system
  • Radar cross section - or RCS, a measure of how detectable an object is by radar
  • Radar equipment - equipment to emit, receive, or measure radar waves
  • Radar theory - the theory of the operation of radar waves in the environment
  • Spaceborne radar - radar where the transceiver is located in space
  • Spread spectrum radar - where a radar signal generated in particular frequency band is spread to cover a wide bandwidth
  • Synthetic aperture radar
  • Ultra wideband radar - or OWB radar, technology that can be used at very low energy levels for short-range communication, high-bandwidth communication by using a large proportion of the radio spectrum
