Mark A. Richards, Ph.D., is Principal Research Engineer and Adjunct Professor, School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), Georgia Institute of Technology. He is engaged in academic and continuing education teaching and course development in the fields of digital signal processing and radar signal processing. Prior to joining ECE, Dr. Richards was a Principal Research Engineer and Chief of the Radar Systems Division and Head of the Signal Processing Branch in the Sensors and Electromagnetic Applications Laboratory of the Georgia Tech Research Institute.
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.
