This third and final volume in the Principles of Modern Radar series brings all the fundamentals and advanced techniques of the prior volumes to their logical conclusion by presenting the applications of radar. This unique book provides in-depth discussions of the most important areas in current radar practice, serving primarily radar practitioners and advanced graduate students.
For those needing to become experts in an advanced technology or application area, Radar Applications should be the foundation of their research before they tackle in-depth, single topic advanced books and literature. These advanced books are suggested at the end of each chapter to guide readers toward the best published works.
Principles of Modern Radar: Radar Applications provides concise descriptions of the purposes, principal issues, and radar methods found in a wide variety of current radar types with military, commercial, and civilian uses. These types of radar include continuous wave (CW) radar, weather and air traffic control, pulse Doppler, fire control, ground moving target indication, and unconventional applications such as materials and ground penetrating radar.
This book combines the best attributes of edited and single-author references. It draws on the expertise of authors from academia and industry, active in both teaching and ongoing research. These specialists provide greater depth and experience over the broad range of radar topics than could any single author. As with the entire Principles of Modern Radar series, this book was community reviewed by experts from around the world for coherence and consistency.
