Fundamentals of Radar Signal Processing, Second Edition: Edition 2

McGraw Hill Professional
2

The most complete, current guide to the signal processing techniques essential to advanced radar systems

Fully updated and expanded, Fundamentals of Radar Signal Processing, Second Edition, offers comprehensive coverage of the basic digital signal processing techniques and technologies on which virtually all modern radar systems rely, including target and interference models, matched filtering, waveform design, Doppler processing, threshold detection, and measurement accuracy.

The methods and interpretations of linear systems, filtering, sampling, and Fourier analysis are used throughout to provide a unified tutorial approach. End-of-chapter problems reinforce the material covered. Developed over many years of academic and professional education, this authoritative resource is ideal for graduate students as well as practicing engineers.

Fundamentals of Radar Signal Processing, Second Edition, covers:

  • Introduction to radar systems
  • Signal models
  • Pulsed radar data acquisition
  • Radar waveforms
  • Doppler processing
  • Detection fundamentals
  • Measurements and tracking
  • Introduction to synthetic aperture imaging
  • Introduction to beamforming and space-time adaptive processing

THE MOST COMPLETE GUIDE TO HIGH FREQUENCY OVER-THE-HORIZON RADAR SYSTEMS

Written by a leading global expert on the topic, High Frequency Over-the-Horizon Radar provides in-depth coverage of the signal processing models and techniques that have significantly advanced OTH radar technology. This pioneering work describes the fundamental principles of OTH radar design and operation, and then delves into the mathematical modeling of HF signals received by actual OTH radar systems based on experimental data analysis. Numerous examples illustrate the practical application of modern adaptive signal processing techniques to real and simulated OTH radar data.

This authoritative text covers skywave and surface-wave systems and is an invaluable resource for researchers, engineers, and practitioners working with OTH radar systems and technologies.

Key Features:

Offers a thorough and accurate treatment of essential concepts ranging from system design and operation, through to signal processing methods, and their practical application. Provides clear explanations of fundamental principles for scientists, engineers, students, practitioners, technicians, managers, and other professionals starting out in this field. Offers a detailed coverage of theoretical and applied signal-processing concepts and techniques that have become a cornerstone for the effective operation of real-world OTH radar systems. Fills a long-standing void in the contemporary OTH radar literature with over 350 illustrations (color figures available for download), and over 500 references.
How wireless technology is redefining the relationship of communication, technology, and society around the world—in everyday work and life, in youth culture, in politics, and in the developing world.

Wireless networks are the fastest growing communications technology in history. Are mobile phones expressions of identity, fashionable gadgets, tools for life—or all of the above? Mobile Communication and Society looks at how the possibility of multimodal communication from anywhere to anywhere at any time affects everyday life at home, at work, and at school, and raises broader concerns about politics and culture both global and local.

Drawing on data gathered from around the world, the authors explore who has access to wireless technology, and why, and analyze the patterns of social differentiation seen in unequal access.They explore the social effects of wireless communication—what it means for family life, for example, when everyone is constantly in touch, or for the idea of an office when workers can work anywhere. Is the technological ability to multitask further compressing time in our already hurried existence?

The authors consider the rise of a mobile youth culture based on peer-to-peer networks, with its own language of texting, and its own values. They examine the phenomenon of flash mobs, and the possible political implications. And they look at the relationship between communication and development and the possibility that developing countries could "leapfrog" directly to wireless and satellite technology. This sweeping book—moving easily in its analysis from the United States to China, from Europe to Latin America and Africa—answers the key questions about our transformation into a mobile network society.
