Principles of Modern Radar: Advanced Techniques is a professional reference for practicing engineers that provides a stepping stone to advanced practice with indepth discussions of the most commonly used advanced techniques for radar design. It will also serve advanced radar academic and training courses with a complete set of problems for students as well as solutions for instructors. This book provides an introduction to advanced radar methods available, spanning the gamut of the most exciting radar capabilities, from exotic waveforms, to ultrahigh resolution 2D and 3D imaging methods, complex adaptive interference cancellation, multitarget tracking in dense scenarios and more. The most uptodate methods, such as multipleinput, multipleoutput (MIMO) are covered. All of this material is presented with the same careful balance of quantitative rigor and qualitative insight of Principles of Modern Radar: Basic Principles (SciTech 2010).
