SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- October 1, 2013

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced the availability of Radar
Principles and Systems courseware from DreamCatcher, for educators at
universities and technical training centers. The courseware provides students
instant access to high-quality professional instruction and hands-on
experience for the latest radar systems and operating principles.

The ME1500 courseware combines Agilent test equipment and SystemVue advanced
simulation software with DreamCatcher’s radar theory and RF demonstration
hardware. Together these solutions enable immersive, high-impact student
engagement with radar systems.

The ME1500 courseware serves as a ready-to-teach package on radar systems and
analysis, including continuous wave, Doppler, frequency-modulated continuous
wave, pulsed and imaging radar. It consists of teaching slides, training kits,
lab sheets and problem-based assignments. In addition to its 45 hours of
teaching material and 24 hours of labs, the courseware provides students
access to SystemVue radar system simulation and radar signal analysis through
the Agilent EEsof EDA University Educational Support Program.

“The use of SystemVue allows students to easily explore algorithmic and
architectural reference designs and verify radar performance under various
signal conditions,” said professor V.C. Koo, technical reviewer and radar
specialist from Multimedia University in Malaysia. “Combining DreamCatcher
courseware with student access to Agilent electronic design automation
software results in a powerful teaching tool for multiple engineering

“Agilent’s teaching solutions with DreamCatcher provide ready-to-use
courseware that benefits both faculty and students,” said Sadaf Siddiqui,
education program manager for Agilent’s Electronic Measurement Group.
“Agilent’s new radar teaching solution is yet another addition to our RF and
microwave lab solutions, which cover the fundamentals of radar design, signal
processing and analysis. Using it, students are now able to work on
industry-standard software and hardware test tools.”

Other key features of the Radar Principles and Systems coursework include:

  *A hardware kit that allows students to gain knowledge of various working
    principles and techniques used in today’s radar systems.
  *The ability to test and analyze radar signals from common sources such as
    Doppler systems.
  *Labs that enable students to perform various types of radar-signal
    measurements and provide access to SystemVue software.
  *Examples of radar system design that allow students to further develop and
    test various types of modern radar systems.

About Agilent SystemVue Radar System Simulation and Signal Analysis

SystemVue Comms Architect (W1461), combined with the SystemVue Radar Model
Library (W1905) and its example workspaces, provides algorithmic and
architectural reference designs to verify radar performance under different
signal conditions. It offers approximately 70 highly parameterized simulation
blocks and over 50 higher-level reference designs to create working
radar-system scenarios. Reference designs include radar processing blocks and
environmental effects such as clutter, targets and even hardware measurements.
The W1905 library can be applied to a wide range of radar technologies, making
it a useful algorithmic reference in most radar applications, both commercial
and military.
