Presented by: Rick Gentile, Senior Product Manager
Next generation RF receivers have to operate in harsh environments where interference of all kinds increase the system level challenges. These types of receivers have numerous applications including cognitive radar, software-defined radio, and more generally, systems that require efficient spectrum management.
In this webinar, we will demonstrate techniques to apply Deep Learning and Machine Learning networks for a range of radar and wireless communications systems. The webinar will cover:
Trade-offs between machine learning and deep learning workflows
Data collection and labeling from off-the-shelf radars and software-defined radios to train and test classifiers
Data synthesis to train Deep Learning and Machine Learning networks
Efficient ways to work with radar and communications I/Q signals, including feature extraction techniques to improve classification results
Application examples with Radar RCS and micro-Doppler identification, radar/comms waveform modulation ID, RF Fingerprinting, and 5G channel estimation
