Of related interest … Microwave Passive Direction Finding Stephen E. Lipsky This breakthrough work answers the need of every engineer in search of a comprehensive, single source on DF technology. Microwave Passive Direction Finding succinctly unifies DF theory, provides representative block diagrams of working equipment, and details the methods of calculating and predicting system performance. Sections cover evolution and use of monopulse passive DF receiver theory, design of antenna elements for conformal DF coverage, receiver configurations, DF antenna arrays, computation methods for signal detection, and much more. Never before published material includes new systems concepts such as digital preprocessing, supercommutation, and wide RF bandwidth noise detection methods. With tips on preparing proposals for new business, this reference covers every aspect of the principles and practice of DF technology. 1987 (0 471-83454-8) 298 pp. Radar Principles Nadav Levanon With this first published textbook on the subject, practicing engineers and graduate students will quickly master the basic concepts of radar science. A clear, straightforward introduction to the discipline through an analytical and problem-solving mode, this unique book features mathematical analysis and proofs, fully analyzed examples, and problem sections—all selected from the author’s course assignments. Key topics include propagation, radar cross section, clutter, radar signals, the ambiguity function, measurement accuracy, coherent processing, Synthetic Aperture Radar and monopulse. The text’s tutorial format, consistent terminology, and 141 illustrations (including 3-D plots of ambiguity functions) make it an optimal self-study tool, classroom text, and professional reference. 1988 (0 471-85881-1) 308 pp. Optimal Radar Tracking Systems George Biernson Here is a systematic unveiling of the methods and means underlying the design of radar tracking technology. Topics covered include issues essential to an understanding of Altair radar as well as target-tracking systems. Kalman filter theory, feedback control, modulation and demodulation of signals, digital sampled-data systems, digital computer simulation, statistical analysis of random signals, detection and tracking processes in a radar system are developed first from their rudiments toward a more advanced discussion. Offering a breadth of technical detail unusual in the unclassified literature, this study is of paramount importance to those involved in tracking applications that use optical signal, sonar signal, or RF telemetry signals. 1989 (0 471-50673-7) 560 pp

About the author (1990)

About the author PHILIP L. BOGLER received a PhD in electrical engineering in the area of communications and electromagnetics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1983. Upon graduation, he joined the technical staff of Hughes Aircraft Company where he specialized in the areas of radar tracking, terrain following, motion compensation, and multiple sensor fusion. In August of 1987, he was appointed an assistant professor at the University of Missouri at Columbia where he taught and led research in the area of communications and radar. In July of 1989, he joined the technical staff of Grumman Corporation at Melbourne, Florida, where his present duties include electronic warfare studies and component evaluation.
