Description

Radar interferometers provide a cost-effective radar architecture to achieve a greater degree of angle accuracy for enhanced target tracking.

Presenting a comprehensive understanding of various radar interferometer architectures, Angle of Arrival Estimation Using Radar Interferometry aims to quantify interferometer angle estimation accuracy.

The interferometer architectures described include; a basic digital interferometer, a monopulse interferometer, an orthogonal interferometer and signal processing algorithms. The techniques described show high accuracy of arrival estimation while also reducing the cost of traditional radar tracking systems.

Featuring some new material and alternative derivations on radar target tracking, Angle of Arrival Estimation Using Radar Interferometry identifies and quantifies radar-based measurement errors on the performance of angle-of-arrival estimation.

By exploring interferometry and beyond, this book offers a unique perspective and an in depth look at the derivation of angle error equations for a radar interferometer as affected not only by additive noise but by other error effects such as multipath, glint, and spectral distortion.
