  • How a radar 'sees'.
  • Getting technical.
  • Measuring distance.
  • Measuring direction.
  • Basic radar picture display.
  • Beam width.
  • Picture stabilization.
  • Where can radar see?
  • What can radar see?
  • Clutter.
  • How radar displays the picture.
  • Conclusion: looking at a radar picture.
