Kennedy: MCQs in Radar Systems

(Last Updated On: December 8, 2017)
MCQs in Radar Systems

This is the Multiple Choice Questions in Chapter 16: Radar Systems from the book Electronic Communication Systems by George Kennedy. If you are looking for a reviewer in Communications Engineering this will definitely help. I can assure you that this will be a great help in reviewing the book in preparation for your Board Exam. Make sure to familiarize each and every questions to increase the chance of passing the ECE Board Exam.

  • d. increased capture area

4. The radar cross section of a target (indicate the false statement)

  • a. depends on the frequency used
  • b. may be reduced by special coating of the target

  • d. is equal to the actual cross-sectional area for small targets

5. Flat-topped rectangular pulses must be transmitted in radar to (indicate the false statement)

  • a. allow a good minimum range
  • b. make the returned echoes easier to distinguish from noise
  • c. prevent frequency changes in the magnetron
  • d. allow accurate range measurements

6. A high PRF will (indicate the false statement)

  • a. make the returned echoes easier to distinguish from noise
  • b. make target tracking easier with conical scanning
  • c. increase the maximum range
  • d. have no effect on the range resolution

7. The IF bandwidth of a radar receiver is inversely proportional to the

  • a. pulse width
  • b. pulse repetition frequency
  • c. pulse interval
  • d. square root of the peak transmitted power

8. If a return echo arrives after the allocated pulse interval,

  • a. it will interfere with the operation of the transmitter
  • b. the receiver might be overloaded
  • c. it will not be received
  • d. the target will appear closer than it really is

9. After a target has been acquired, the best scanning system for tracking is

  • a. nodding
  • b. spiral
  • c. conical
  • d. helical

10. If the target cross section is changing, the best system for accurate tracking is

  • a. lobe switching

  • c. conical scanning
  • d. monopulse

11. The biggest disadvantage of CW Doppler radar is that

  • a. it does not give the target velocity

  • c. a transponder is required at the target
  • d. it does not give the target position

12. The A scope displays

  • a. the target position and range
  • b. the target range, but not position
  • c. the target position, but not range
  • d. neither range nor position, but not only velocity

13. The Doppler effect is used in (indicate the false statement)

  • a. moving-target plotting on the PPI
  • b. the MTI system

  • b. match the phase of the coho and the stalo
  • c. match the phase of the coho and the output oscillator
  • d. delay a sweep so that the next sweep can be subtracted from it

16. A solution to the “blind speed” problem is

  • a. to change the Doppler frequency
  • b. to vary the PRF
  • c. to use monopulse

  • b. ability to track and scan simultaneously
  • c. circuit simplicity
  • d. ability to track many targets simultaneously
