Understanding Radar Systems

Understanding Radar Systems

by Simon Kingsley, Shaun Quegan

What is radar? What systems are currently in use? How do they work? Understanding Radar Systems provides engineers and scientists with answers to these critical questions, focusing on actual radar systems in use today. It's the perfect resource for those just entering the field or a quick refresher for experienced practitioners. The book leads readers through the specialized language and calculations that comprise the complex world of modern radar engineering as seen in dozens of state-of-the-art radar systems. The authors stress practical concepts that apply to all radar, keeping math to a minimum. Most of the book is based on real radar systems rather than theoretical studies. The result is a valuable, easy-to-use guide that makes the difficult parts of the field easier and helps readers do performance calculations quickly and easily.

About the Author

Dr. Simon Kingsley is a lecturer at Sheffield University. He began a lifetime career in radar research with a PhD project that used radar to study the upper atmosphere. After a period as an advanced research fellow, he joined the Marconi Research Centre and led a group concerned with long range radar detection and tracking theory. In 1987 he joined Sheffield University to concentrate on the development of radar techniques, mainly for remote sensing.

Dr. Shaun Quegan is Director of the Sheffield Centre for Earth Observation Science and leads its Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Research Group.
