is FMCOMMS5 a Suitable platform for direction finding or coherent for radar ?


I recently decided to purchase a AD9361 based board but i'm hesitating FMCOMMS5 and its phase calibration feature. My main goal is radar application (preferably with coherent pulse  integration) but with fmcomms5 there will be 2 chips which make a more straight forward integration such as RF SOM ADRV9361-Z7035  difficult for me as i'm not skilled in board design ( another thing i have no knowledge of :/)

i noticed an IP called loopback delay estimation in RFSOM, i don't know if that would be sufficient ? 

Also, if time domain synchronisation is sufficient for TDD? why bother with RF synchronisation.?

Thanks , Best regards !
