Main description

The Industry Standard in Radar Technology_Now Updated with All the Advances and Trends of the Past 17 Years

Turn to the Third Edition of Radar Handbook for state-of-the-art coverage of the entire field of radar technology_from fundamentals to the newest applications.

With contributions by 30 world experts, this resource examines methods for predicting radar range and explores radar subsystems such as receivers, transmitters, antennas, data processing, ECCM, and pulse compression. This radar handbook also explains the target cross section...radar echoes from ground and sea...and all radar systems, including MTI, AMTI, pulse doppler, and others. Using SI units, the Third Edition of Radar Handbook features:

  • Unsurpassed guidance on radar fundamentals, theory, and applications
  • Hundreds of examples and illustrations
  • New to this edition: new chapters on radar digital signal processing, radar in air traffic control, ground penetrating radar, fighter aircraft radar, and civil marine radar; 22 thoroughly revised chapters; 17 new contributors
