Electromagnetic Signals: Reflection, Focusing, Distortion, and Their Practical Applications

Overview

Electromagnetic Signals deals with the practical applications of nonsinusoidal electromagnetic waves or carrier free radars, ultrawideband technology and large relative bandwidth technology. The book is unique since it deals with a number of current conventional radar problems along with proposed solutions.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Explores the addition of a magnetic dipole current density term to Maxwell's equations, the resulting equations that permit signal solutions, and their practical applications. For instance, the authors show that Snell's law of reflection does not hold and that signals can be designed that yield deviations, and suggest how anti- stealth radars can be designed. Other applications include airborne anti-submarine radar, and the use of focused signals for the improvement of penetration depth and resolution of ground-probing radar.
