An advanced treatment of the main concepts of radar. Systematic and organized, it nicely balances readability with mathematical rigor. Many techniques and examples have been chosen from the radar industry (Rayleigh fluctuating targets are used as they yield simple expressions for the probability of detection), and others for their pedagogical value (Costas signals lead the coded radar signals because their ambiguity function can be intuitively deduced). Ordered statistics is covered in more depth than other CFAR techniques because its performance can be obtained analytically without resorting to simulation methods. Contains many exercises.
An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available from the Wiley editorial department.
