Radar Techniques Using Array Antennas, 2nd Edition

by Wulf-Dieter Wirth

Radar Techniques Using Array Antennas is a thorough introduction to the possibilities of radar technology based on electronic steerable and active array antennas.

Topics covered include array signal processing, array calibration, adaptive digital beamforming, adaptive monopulse, superresolution, pulse compression, sequential detection, target detection with long pulse series, space-time adaptive processing (STAP), moving target detection using synthetic aperture radar (SAR), target imaging, energy management and system parameter relations. The discussed methods are confirmed by simulation studies and experimental array systems developed by the authors team at FGAN, now Fraunhofer.

This new edition has been fully updated and revised, and includes discussion of compressed sensing and its possible application to beam forming, some results for phase-only-nulling against jammers, descriptions of further algorithms for superresolution for location and separation of radar targets and the reconnaissance of other radiating sources, extension and explanation of the basic ideas for MIMO-radar, and a new chapter on radar operation by passive coherent location.

Providing many valuable lessons for designers of future high standard multifunction radar systems for military and civil applications, this book will appeal to graduate level engineers, researchers, and managers in the field of radar, aviation and space technology.

About the Author

Wulf-Dieter Wirth was founder and head of the Electronics Department of FGAN, the German defence research establishment, for about 40 years. He received his Dr.-Ing degree in electrical engineering from the Technical University ofg Berlin, Germany in 1962. He has published more than 50 papers with emphasis on phased array radar and signal procesing and presented reguarly at radar conferances. He was a member of several NATO research studies and other international working groups and the radar-committee of DGON. Since his retirement he has been a senior scientist at Fraunhofer FKIE, working on array signal processing for reconnaissance and passive coherent location radar.
