1 Review
Introduction to Radar Analysis outlines the fundamental principles and applications of radar as well as important mathematical derivations - serving as a reference for engineers, technical managers, and students.
This comprehensive book divides into two parts:
  • General analytical treatment of radar signal processing
  • Specific discussion of radar topics and radar types
    Chapters contain:
  • derivations of the radar equation in many forms for an essential understanding of radar principles
  • examination of radar cross section and receiver noise
  • practical aspects of radar systems, including stretch processing, multipath propagation, and track filters
  • analysis of probability of detection and radar losses; CW and pulsed radars; and pulse compression
  • investigation of current research and industry trends, including clutter and wave propagation, Moving Target Indicator (MTI), tracking radars, and array antennas
  • a unique approach in presenting Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
  • 756 equations and formulas providing detailed mathematical derivations
  • 165 examples and exercise problems as well as 149 figures and plots
    Introduction to Radar Analysis acts as an essential stepping stone toward specialized topics - providing a clear, accessible framework of radar fundamentals as well as a thorough study of advanced topics and radar technology issues.
