Overview

Master the signal processing knowledge and skills

essential to understand today’s advanced radar systems

Evolved from a course taught by a respected leader in the field, this rigorous text provides detailed coverage of radar DSP fundamentals and applications not to be found elsewhere in the literature. Written for graduate engineering students and working professionals seeking enhanced skills and career advancement, Mark Richard's Fundamentals of Radar Signal Processing provides clear, modern instruction in radar DSP basics and the skills needed in both design and analysis of common radar algorithms. This text is ideal for those looking to go beyond the cursory treatment of signal processing in general radar systems books to seek more detailed treatments of signal models, waveforms, interference reduction, and detection, as well as to gain the foundation needed for specialty texts that focus on advanced radar signal processing topics such as SAR and STAP.

Developed and tested over many years of graduate and professional education, this in-depth introduction to the radar DSP techniques at the foundation of current advanced radar technologies provides a thorough description and detailed examples of:

  • Signal acquisition and sampling in multiple domains
  • Target and interference models
  • Common radar waveforms
  • Interference reduction techniques
  • Detection algorithms and tools
  • Basic synthetic aperture imaging and adaptive array processing
  • Much more
