Product Description:

This introduction to the field of radar is intended for actual users of radar. It focuses on the history, main principles, functions, modes, properties and specific nature of modern airborne radar. The book examines radar's role within the system when carrying out its assigned missions, showing the possibilities of radar as well as its limitations. Finally, given the changing operational requirements and the potential opened up by modern technological developments, a concluding section describes how radar may evolve in the future.

The authors review the current state of the main types of airborne and spaceborne radar systems, designed for specific missions as well as for the global environment of their host aircraft or satellites. They include numerous examples of the parameters of these radars. The emphasis in the book is not only on a particular radar technique, but equally on the main radar functions and missions. Even if a wide range of techniques are described in the book, the focus is on those which are connected to practical applications.

Users and other non-specialists will use the book to communicate better with suppliers, whereas engineers will find design examples and algorithms that actually work in such areas as air-to-air detection and tracking, air-to-ground, air-to-sea, and imaging from aircraft or from space. The authors give an original and independent view of the subject, based technical experience gained from their own close involvement with all the key development in airborne radar systems in France for the last 40 years.


- Visually stunning presentation, heavily illustrated with drawings, photos, charts, and more, including SAR images at very high resolution

- Explains the motion effect on SAR images as well as on the main autofocus techniques and their performance. Includes an original algorithm for ISAR imaging of ships at sea.

- Gives equal treatment to air defense, ground surveillance and sea surveillance systems. Most books concentrate on air defense.

- Easy to understand. Can be read by anyone with only general technical and/or scientific knowledge.
