Log in to rate this item
SciTech Publishing, Inc. is pleased to make this popular and compact book on radar principles for non-designers working with radar. The book provides solid understanding of radar fundamentals and applications with far less of the mathematical rigor and technical data presented in engineering books for specialists. In logical progression, the book moves from electromagnetic propagation principles to someof the most recent radar systems deployed by the defense department, the FAA, commercial airlines, the National Space Agency, police agencies, and ships at sea. It also includes concise, yet complete, discussions of antennas, detection andtracking, radar cross-section, waveforms and signal processing, electronic countermeasures, and system applications. Among its many features, this book contains:Recent developments and intrinsically hot topics such as countermeasures, jamming and anti-jamming phased array, pulse-doppler, synthetic aperture, laser radars, digital signal processing and computer control, earth-to-air and airborne radar, Kalman filtering, and military applicationsConcise, self-contained chapters for quick and easy comprehension of a topicNumerous exercises that reinforce the grasp of concepts andtheir real-life applicationA practical glossary to help readers look up and apply key termsAppendices that provide quick look-up of essential data, tables, and formulae.
