Thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the advances made in radar over the past two decades, this one-of-a-kind reference offers radar engineers all the fundamental and advanced information they need in day-to-day work. This completely new Second Edition features material on: digital techniques, the Doppler filter bank, the analog SAW dispersive delay line, 3-dimensional radar, the ultra-low sidelobe antenna, semi-active radar, the adaptive antenna, the use of computers, and much more. Readers will find several lucid chapters on all major sub-systems of a radar, such as the receiver, transmitter, solid-state transmitters, reflector antennas, phased array antennas, data processing, ECCM, and pulse compression. There are discussions of the target cross section and the nature of the radar echoes from the ground and the sea. A wide range of material covers various types of radar systems, including CW and FM-CW, MTI, AMTI, pulse Doppler, tracking, missile guidance, height finding and 3D, and synthetic aperture radar. The Handbook also examines three specialized examples of radar that have their own unique character: radar in space, meteorological (weather) radar, and HF over-the-horizon radar.
From the Back Cover
The Standard Reference on Radar Technology--Completely Revised and Updated RADAR HANDBOOK Second Edition Thoroughly revised to reflect advances made in radar technology over the past two decades, this second edition of the Radar Handbook will be welcomed by radar engineers, designers, and technicians the world over. Growth in radar capability and applications has been-and continues to be--prodigious, and the new material (nearly 75 percent) in this volume reflects that. The handbook covers all the new developments in radar, as well as the fundamentals, making it the standard reference. Each of the 25 chapters is written by an expert or experts in the field; more than half of the authors are new to this edition. A sampling of the many new radar advances includes: Systems such as HF over-the-horizon radar for long-range detection, space-based radar for global coverage, doppler weather radar for improved weather forecasting, radar guidance of missiles, and 3D air surveillance radar. Technology such as solid-state transmitters, digital signal processing for implementing doppler filters for moving-target indiction, CFAR, and automatic detection and tracking. Target and clutter cross-section characteristics, prediction, and measurement. Antenna technology ranging from modern reflector antennas to electronically steered phased arrays, low-sidelobe antennas, and adaptive antennas. Airborne pulse doppler, AMTI, and MTI radar methods for the detection of aircraft in the midst of much larger clutter echoes. With all this and much, much more, including discussions of modern radar transmitters and receivers not available elsewhere, the Radar Handbook belongs on the bookshelf of every radar engineer.
