Principles of Modern Radar
Volume 2: Advanced techniques
This second of three volumes in the Principles of Modern Radar series offers a much-needed professional reference for practicing radar engineers. It provides the stepping stones under one cover to advanced practice with overview discussions of the most commonly used techniques for radar design, thereby bridging readers to single-topic advanced books, papers, and presentations. It spans a gamut of exciting radar capabilities from exotic waveforms to ultra-high resolution 2D and 3D imaging methods, complex adaptive interference cancellation, multi-target tracking in dense scenarios, multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) and much more. All of this material is presented with the same careful balance of quantitative rigor and qualitative insight of Principles of Modern Radar: Basic Principles. Each chapter is likewise authored by recognized subject experts, with the rigorous editing for consistency and suggestions of numerous volunteer reviewers from the radar community applied throughout. Advanced academic and training courses will appreciate the sets of chapter-end problems for students, as well as worked solutions for instructors. Extensive reference lists show the way for further study.
About the Editors
William Melvin is Director of the Sensors and Electromagnetic Applications Laboratory at the Georgia Tech Research Institute and an Adjunct Professor in Georgia Tech's Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. His research interests include systems engineering, advanced signal processing and exploitation, and high-fidelity modeling and simulation. He has authored over 160 publications in his areas of expertise and holds three patents on adaptive radar technology. Among his distinctions, Dr. Melvin is a Fellow of the IEEE, with the follow citation: 'For contributions to adaptive signal processing methods in radar systems.' He received the Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. (with High Honors) degrees in Electrical Engineering from Lehigh University.
Jim Scheer has 40 years of hands-on experience in the design, development, and analysis of radar systems. He currently consults and works part time for GTRI and teaches radar-related short courses. He began his career with the General Electric Company (now Lockheed Martin Corporation), working on the F-111 attack radar system. In 1975 he moved to GTRI, where he worked on radar system applied research until his retirement in 2004. Mr. Scheer is an IEEE Life Fellow and holds a BSEE degree from Clarkson University and the MSEE degree from Syracuse University.
