Integration of material taught earlier (circuits, electronics, electromagnetic field, antennas) aimed at synthesis of real telecommunication systems. Familiarization with the operation of radio-systems used for location (e.g., radar), navigation (e.g., GPS, beacons), monitoring (e.g., weather).
Course Content (Syllabus)
