Pulsed RF radar signals must be accurately characterized to evaluate a radar system's performance,therefore using the right test tools is vital. Modern radar test instruments,with advances in DSP measurement technology,are able to provide even greater insight than their analog counterparts.The increased performance, flexibility, and functionality of modern instruments are especially useful when evaluating radars that use advanced pulse compression techniques and pulse shaping.This paper will examine the measurements and capabilities that are available for radar using modern spectrum analyzers, vector signal analyzers,and power meters.
