In this chapter, we present a cognitive radar architecture based on the three-layer model by Rasmussen. The skill-based-layer is characterized by adaptive signal-processing approaches and target matched waveforms. The rule-based-layer comprises reactive execution of optimal illumination policies and resource-management. The knowledge-based layer allows for long term, goal-oriented mission- and trajectory planning. Each layer is illustrated by example algorithms and applications for implementation.
