This rigorous text provides in-depth coverage of radar signal processing from a DSP perspective, filling a gap in the literature. There are a number of good books on general radar systems: Skolnik and Nathanson are the most popular. There are also good monographs on advanced and specialty topics like synthetic aperture imaging. But there is a large, practical gap between the qualitative system books and the advanced DSP titles, and that is the slot this book fills.

Offering radar-related software for the analysis and design of radar waveform and signal processing, Radar Signal Analysis and Processing Using MATLAB® provides a comprehensive source of theoretical and practical information on radar signals, signal analysis, and radar signal processing with companion MATLAB® code. After an overview of radar systems operation and design, the book reviews elements of signal theory relevant to radar detection and radar signal processing, along with random variables and processes. The author then presents the unique characteristic of the matched filter and develops a general formula for the output of the matched filter that is valid for any waveform. He analyzes several analog waveforms, including the linear frequency modulation pulse and stepped frequency waveforms, as well as unmodulated pulse-train, binary, polyphase, and frequency codes. The book explores radar target detection and pulse integration, emphasizing the constant false alarm rate. It also covers the stretch processor, the moving target indicator, radar Doppler processing, beamforming, and adaptive array processing. Using configurable MATLAB code, this book demonstrates how to apply signal processing to radar applications. It includes many examples and problems to illustrate the practical application of the theory.

Principles of Modern Radar

Volume 3 Radar Applications

Category: Technology & Engineering

Page: 820

View: 8932

Principles of Modern Radar: Radar Applications is the third of the three-volume series of what was originally designed to be accomplished in one volume. As the final volume of the set, it finishes the original vision of a complete yet bounded reference for radar technology. This volume describes fifteen different system applications or class of applications in more detail than can be found in Volumes I or II. As different as the applications described, there is a difference in how these topics are treated by the authors. Whereas in Volumes I and II there is strict adherence to chapter format and level of detail, this volume has a wider dynamic range of technical depth. Some system applications lend themselves to a deeper level of technical description than others.

Learn to use MATLAB as a useful computing tool for exploring traditional Digital Signal Processing (DSP) topics and solving problems to gain insight. DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING USING MATLAB: A PROBLEM SOLVING COMPANION, 4E greatly expands the range and complexity of problems that learners can effectively study. Since DSP applications are primarily algorithms implemented on a DSP processor or software, they typically require a significant amount of programming. Using interactive software, such as MATLAB, enables readers to focus on mastering new and challenging concepts rather than concentrating on programming algorithms. This edition discusses interesting, practical examples and explores useful problems to provide the groundwork for further study.
