This new title provides a comprehensive account of the current state of the main types of airborne and spaceborne radar systems. Each system is covered in terms of the basic radar principles, functions and properties, as well as the radar's role within the overall system and mission. Given changing operational requirements, the authors also consider how radar may evolve into the future. The book benefits from the knowledge of the author team, who are working in a company considered to be a centre of excellence for commercial radar development.
A practical tool on radar systems that will be of major help to technicians, student engineers and engineers working in industry and in radar research and development. The many users of radar as well as systems engineers and designers will also find it highly useful. Also of interest to pilots and flight engineers and military command personnel and military contractors. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
