    Ever dreamt of making your own Radar?
    Ever dreamt of understanding all the technicalities in building a RADAR?
    And that too a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) from a leading school in the world? (MIT)

    all possible: if you can spare 5 days and $4000.00

    heck, I am so tempted to do this.

    heres the link if someone is interested :)

    I don't have the technical abilities to be able to do such a course, even if it is only 5 days long :p

    haha, I certainly didn't give myself the title! It definitely flatters me.

    Good course, if you have $4000 to spare.

    4000 dollars?
    Nope...I'm planning a coffee can radar, much cheaper and effective. Tell me if you're interested. :p

    heh heh.. nah.. you can input the signals to laptop maybe, but this is a full fledged SAR that can be built. I am looking for inspiration from someone to join this. :)

    maybe a course on building UAVs will be something we can jump in?

    search deeper online and you would get the whole thing for a fraction of the cost. The internet is a treasure chest.

    Actually this was available as a DIY in 2012 for 250$ but someone has pushed for a bit of revenue and made it into a fully fledged course.

    link for that 250$ course.

    also - the 4k is probably for a more deeper course and also - the brand value of MIT
