Radar Systems Principles Book Review:

In planning a radar system, having the proper mathematical modeling of propagation effects, clutter, and target statistics is essential. Radar Systems Principles provides a strong theoretical basis for the myriad of formulas and rules of thumb required for analysis, conceptual design, and performance evaluation of radar systems. Mathematical derivations of formulas commonly used by radar engineers are presented, with detailed discussions of the assumptions behind these expressions and their ranges of validity. These principles are used in a wide range of radar applications. Radar Systems Principles makes it easy to understand the steps in calculating various formulas and when and how these formulas are used. A set of problems is provided for each chapter, enabling you to check your progress in applying the principles discussed in each section of the text. There are more than 170 figures illustrating key concepts. Numerous references to well-known books on radar for coverage of practical design issues and other specialized topics are given. Radar Systems Principles is an ideal textbook for advanced undergraduates and first-year graduate students and also makes an excellent vehicle for self-study by engineers wishing to enhance their understanding of radar principles and their implication in actual systems.

Signal Processing in Radar Systems Book Review:

An essential task in radar systems is to find an appropriate solution to the problems related to robust signal processing and the definition of signal parameters. Signal Processing in Radar Systems addresses robust signal processing problems in complex radar systems and digital signal processing subsystems. It also tackles the important issue of defining signal parameters. The book presents problems related to traditional methods of synthesis and analysis of the main digital signal processing operations. It also examines problems related to modern methods of robust signal processing in noise, with a focus on the generalized approach to signal processing in noise under coherent filtering. In addition, the book puts forth a new problem statement and new methods to solve problems of adaptation and control by functioning processes. Taking a systems approach to designing complex radar systems, it offers readers guidance in solving optimization problems. Organized into three parts, the book first discusses the main design principles of the modern robust digital signal processing algorithms used in complex radar systems. The second part covers the main principles of computer system design for these algorithms and provides real-world examples of systems. The third part deals with experimental measurements of the main statistical parameters of stochastic processes. It also defines their estimations for robust signal processing in complex radar systems. Written by an internationally recognized professor and expert in signal processing, this book summarizes investigations carried out over the past 30 years. It supplies practitioners, researchers, and students with general principles for designing the robust digital signal processing algorithms employed by complex radar systems.

Radar Systems Analysis and Design Using MATLAB Second Edition Book Review:

An introduction to radar systems should ideally be self-contained and hands-on, a combination lacking in most radar texts. The first edition of Radar Systems Analysis and Design Using MATLAB® provided such an approach, and the second edition continues in the same vein. This edition has been updated, expanded, and reorganized to include advances in the field and to be more logical in sequence. Ideal for anyone encountering the topic for the first time or for professionals in need of on-the-job reference, this book features an abundance of MATLAB programs and code. Radar Systems Analysis and Design Using MATLAB®, Second Edition presents the fundamentals and principles of radar along with enough rigorous mathematical derivations to ensure that you gain a deep understanding. The author has extensively revised chapters on radar cross-section and polarization, matched filter and radar ambiguity function, and radar wave propagation. He also added information on topics such as PRN codes, multipath and refraction, clutter and MTI processing, and high range resolution. With all MATLAB functions updated to reflect version 7.0 and an expanded set of self-test problems, you will find this up-to-date text to be the most complete treatment of radar available, providing the hands-on tools that will enrich your learning.
