Model and analyze radar systems.

STK Radar simulates radar system performance in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) or Search/Track modes. With Radar, you can model Monostatic, Bistatic, and Multifunction radars in the context of your mission to account for the participation of every asset. Assess the impacts of a wide variety of conditions and interference on your radar system. Evaluate the results with reports, graphs, and 2D and 3D visualization.
