Radar Principles

Nadav Levanon

ISBN: 978-0-471-85881-2 May 1988 320 Pages

Description

An advanced treatment of the main concepts of radar. Systematic andorganized, it nicely balances readability with mathematical rigor.Many techniques and examples have been chosen from the radarindustry (Rayleigh fluctuating targets are used as they yieldsimple expressions for the probability of detection), and othersfor their pedagogical value (Costas signals lead the coded radarsignals because their ambiguity function can be intuitivelydeduced). Ordered statistics is covered in more depth than otherCFAR techniques because its performance can be obtainedanalytically without resorting to simulation methods. Contains manyexercises.

An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all theproblems in the book is available from the Wiley editorialdepartment.
