Novel Radar Techniques and Applications presents the state-of-the-art in advanced radar, with emphasis on ongoing novel research and development and contributions from an international team of leading radar experts. Each section gives an overview of the latest research and perspectives of the future, and includes a number of chapters dedicated to specific techniques in conjunction with existing operational, experimental or conceptual applications.
Richard Klemm has recently retired after a distinguished career at FGAN FHR (now Fraunhofer FHR), a research institute working in the areas defence and security, and decades of service to the radar community. In his spare time Richard Klemm is a passionate classical pianist.
Ulrich Nickel has recently retired after a career as head of the research group Data Fusion for Array Sensors of the Sensor Data and Information Fusion (SDF) department of Fraunhofer FKIE in Wachtberg, Germany.
Christoph H. Gierull is a Senior Scientist with Defence R&D Canada, Ottawa Research Centre assuming the duties of Group Leader, Space-based Radar as well as Adjunct Professor at Laval University, Quebec and Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, Canada.
Pierfrancesco Lombardo is Full Professor at University of Rome “La Sapienza”, where he leads the “Radar, Remote Sensing and Navigation” (RRSN) group. He is Technical Editor for Radar Systems of IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems.
Hugh Griffiths holds the THALES/Royal Academy Chair of RF Sensors in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at University College London, England.
Wolfgang Koch is head of the Sensor Data and Information Fusion (SDF) department at Fraunhofer FKIE, an institute of the Fraunhofer Society, the largest institution for applied research in Europe.
Richard being a passionate classical pianist, I see the two-volume book as a Symphony1 he has conceived, realized and directed with the wise and expert assistance of the five co-directors. The Authors being an orchestra of Professors each with their own specialty. Each author plays a piece of the symphony, which is in harmony across the seven parts in which the book is subdivided. The NRTA being a two-volume book with seven parts, it resembles a “super-Symphony”.
