Advanced Radar Techniques and Systems
Within the wide and fascinating field of radar techniques and systems, this book describes in detail a number of areas of research related to system architecture and design, phenomenology, array antennas and signal processing.
The topics covered include:
- Radar detection
- Phenomenology of clutter and related constant false alarm rate (CFAR) processors
- Doppler techniques for surveillance radar, multifunction radar and synthetic aperture radar
- Clutter suppression: moving target indicators and detectors, adaptive and optimum MTI
- Rejection of jamming in space and frequency domains
- Concepts of radar target identification
- Architectural options and trend in radar signal processing
- Phased arrays: array theory, analysis and synthesis techniques; array elements and mutual coupling effects; architecture, elements, design criteria and low-sidelobe techniques for active arrays
- Bistatic radar
- Space-based radar
The book is primarily aimed at radar engineers and researchers, as well as at students of advanced radar.
About the Editors
Gaspare Galati received the Dr Ing degree (Laurea) in 1970 and from then until 1986 he was with the company Selenia where he worked in radar system analysis and design, heading their Systems Analysis Group between 1984 and 1986.
He taught Probability and Statistics at the University of Calabria from 1979 to 1983, and Telecommunications at the University of L'Aquila from 1984 to 1986. Since then he has been Associate Professor of Radar Theory and Techniques at the Tor Vergata University of Rome.
He is a member of the IET and a senior member of the IEEE. Within the IEEE he is chairman of the Signal Processing and Aerospace and Electronic Systems Chapter and vice-chairman of the Central and Southern Italy Section.
His main interests are in the theory and techniques of radar, weather and space-based radar, signal processing and air traffic control.
