Modern Radar Systems
This one-of-a-kind book features 536 illustrations (drawn in Maple V) that offer a greater understanding of various waveforms, and other two- and three-dimensional functions, to help you more accurately analyze radar system performance. The effects of pulse shaping on transmitter stability and spectra are discussed - a topic which is becoming more and more important in the age of electromagnetic compatibility. The book addresses the importance of low attenuation and reflection between the main radio frequency blocks, including the use of oversized waveguides for long runs.
