Modern Radar Systems (Google eBook)
"This revised and updated edition of Modern Radar Systems, offers coverage of the subject and extends the treatment into the lesser understood statistical domain. The book features 686 illustrations (146 which are new to this edition) that offer a greater understanding of the waveforms and their spectra drawn in two and three dimensions." "Practitioners find coverage of noise to echo and clutter signals to obtain probabilities of false alarm and detection. Moreover, the book illustrates the range extents of the ground, sea, and rain clutter with the spectra. This unique resource presents a number of atmospheric models together with their range-height diagrams and the effects of ground reflection. Statistical aspects of detection are discussed analytically and graphically. Each chapter ends with a performance section, showing the effect of the block on the complete radar system budget for range, accuracy, and stability. This second edition also includes an expanded appendix on tapering, including the limitations of using digital processing."--BOOK JACKET.
