Abstract: Microwave photonics (MWP) Technology brings Microwave and optical domains together. Due to its extraordinary capabilities and solution especially towards generation, transmission and processing of Microwave signals, the MWP field has potential to break barrier, which was not possible with RF technology alone. MWP technologies provide new opportunities in many areas like 5G networks, Advanced Radar and Internet of things. As demand for multi-functionality and reduced size is growing in every field, Radar is no exception. Radar systems capabilities in terms of functionality, precision, response time have significantly improved in past decades. MWP technologies are one of the key factors in that. With Modern photonics technologies Radar performance in terms of Speed, resolution, coverage, precise target identification has improved drastically. To understand the photonics technologies in detail, this paper is designed, which highlights the important features of Microwave photonics techniques applied in Radar and its subsystems
