Now available as a 3 Volume Set, the popular “Principles of Modern Radar” series covers the applications and uses of current radar types with military, commercial and civilian uses.  

Principles of Modern Radar: Radar Applications Volume 3

The third volume in the Principles of Modern Radar series presents specific real-world applications of radar systems, drawing upon previous editions by combining underlying basic principles with advanced radar techniques.

Providing in-depth discussions of the most important application areas in current radar practice, this volume includes concise descriptions of the purposes, principal issues and radar methods found in a wide variety of current radar types. Each chapter is authored by experts in the field who are active in research and teaching radar practitioners in professional courses.

Principles of Modern Radar: Advanced Techniques Volume 2

A professional reference for practicing engineers that provides a stepping stone to advanced practice. The second volume includes in-depth discussions of the most commonly used advanced techniques for radar design and includes topics such as; exotic waveforms, complex adaptive interference cancellation and multi-target tracking in dense scenarios.

Principles of Modern Radar: Basic Principles Volume 1

This first volume is a comprehensive and modern textbook for courses in radar systems and technology. With a focus on 4 keys areas; basic concepts, radar signal phenomenology, major subsystems of modern radars and signal and data processing basics, this book can be used as a professional training textbook for formal in-house courses and a reference for on-going study.
