A reference source for phase noise effects on systems and components. Analyzes the effects of phase noise on a radar system's performance and on its major subsystems. Sequence of chapters follows the path of phase noise in a radar system from its generation through its transmission, reception, and processing to its final displayed level. Discusses major radar design areas pertaining to the analysis of phase noise effects on system performance. Includes solved practical problems and computer programs.
This revised and updated edition offers complete and up-to-date coverage of modern radar systems, including new material on accuracy, resolution, and convolution and correlation. The book features more than 540 illustrations (drawn in Maple V) that offer a greater understanding of various waveforms, and other two- and three-dimensional functions, to help you more accurately analyze radar system performance.
Based on the classic Radar Range-Performance Analysis from 1980, this practical volume extends that work to ensure applicability of radar equations to the design and analysis of modern radars. This unique book helps you identify what information on the radar and its environment is needed to predict detection range. Moreover, it provides equations and data to improve the accuracy of range calculations. You find detailed information on propagation effects, methods of range calculation in environments that include clutter, jamming and thermal noise, as well as loss factors that reduce radar performance. This invaluable book is supported with nearly 200 illustrations and over 430 equations.
Describing a field that has been transformed by the recent availability of data from a new generation of space and airborne systems, the authors offer a synthetic geometrical approach to the description of synthetic aperture radar, one that addresses physicists, radar specialists, as well as experts in image processing.
This book describes the steps involved in the evaluation of radar design and performance without complicated math. Easily understood by both engineers and non-technical personnel, it contains a comprehensive discussion of the complex factors involved in the radar design process.
Richly illustrated, and including both an extensive bibliography and index, this indispensable guide brings together the theory, design, and applications of atmospheric radar. It explains the basic thermodynamics and dynamics of the troposphere, stratosphere, and mesosphere, and discusses the physical and engineering principles behind one of the key tools used to study these regions - MST radars. Key topics covered include antennas, signal propagation, and signal processing techniques. A wide range of practical applications are discussed, including the use of atmospheric radar to study wind profiles, tropospheric temperature, and gravity waves. A detailed overview of radar designs provides a wealth of knowledge and tools, providing readers with a strong basis for building their own instruments. This is an essential resource for graduate students and researchers working in the areas of radar engineering, remote sensing, meteorology, and atmospheric physics, as well as for practitioners in the radar industry.
This edition is the most comprehensive and informative available on radar systems and technology. Thoroughly revised and updated to reflect the advances made in radar over the past two decades. Charts/graphs.
A thorough update to the Artech House classic Modern Radar Systems Analysis, this reference is a comprehensive and cohesive introduction to radar systems design and performance estimation. It offers you the knowledge you need to specify, evaluate, or apply radar technology in civilian or military systems. The book presents accurate detection range equations that let you realistically estimate radar performance in a variety of practical situations. With its clear, easy-to-understand language, you quickly learn the tradeoffs between choice of wavelength and radar performance and see the inherent advantages and limitations associated with each radar band. You find modeling procedures to help you analyze enemy systems or evaluate radar integrated into new weapon systems. The book covers ECM and ECCM for both surveillance and tracking to help you estimate the effects of active and passive ECM, select hardware/software for reconnaissance or jamming, and plan the operation of EW systems. As radar systems evolve, this book provides the equations needed to calculate and evaluate the performance of the latest advances in radar technology.
This book clearly describes all the radar detection and jamming equations you need to design and analyze search and track radars. It reviews the hardware, theories, and techniques involved in modern EW systems signal processing and discusses present and future trends in EW technology.

The use of MATLAB® in clinical Medical Physics is continuously increasing, thanks to new technologies and developments in the field. However, there is a lack of practical guidance for students, researchers, and medical professionals on how to incorporate it into their work. Focusing on the areas of diagnostic Nuclear Medicine and Radiation Oncology Imaging, this book provides a comprehensive treatment of the use of MATLAB in clinical Medical Physics, in Nuclear Medicine. It is an invaluable guide for medical physicists and researchers, in addition to postgraduates in medical physics or biomedical engineering, preparing for a career in the field. In the field of Nuclear Medicine, MATLAB enables quantitative analysis and the visualization of nuclear medical images of several modalities, such as Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), or a hybrid system where a Computed Tomography system is incorporated into a SPECT or PET system or similarly, a Magnetic Resonance Imaging system (MRI) into a SPECT or PET system. Through a high-performance interactive software, MATLAB also allows matrix computation, simulation, quantitative analysis, image processing, and algorithm implementation. MATLAB can provide medical physicists with the necessary tools for analyzing and visualizing medical images. It is useful in creating imaging algorithms for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, solving problems of image reconstruction, processing, and calculating absorbed doses with accuracy. An important feature of this application of MATLAB is that the results are completely reliable and are not dependent on any specific γ-cameras and workstations. The use of MATLAB algorithms can greatly assist in the exploration of the anatomy and functions of the human body, offering accurate and precise results in Nuclear Medicine studies. KEY FEATURES Presents a practical, case-based approach whilst remaining accessible to students Contains chapter contributions from subject area specialists across the field Includes real clinical problems and examples, with worked through solutions Maria Lyra Georgosopoulou, PhD, is a Medical Physicist and Associate Professor at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece. Photo credit: The Antikythera Mechanism is the world’s oldest known analog computer. It consisted of many wheels and discs that could be placed onto the mechanism for calculations. It is possible that the first algorithms and analog calculations in mathematics were implemented with this mechanism, invented in the early first centuries BC. It has been selected for the cover to demonstrate the importance of calculations in science.
The leading text and reference on radar cross section (RCS) theory and applications, this work presents a comparison of two radar signal strengths. One is the strength of the radar bean sweeping over a target, the other is the strength of the reflected echo senses by the receiver. This book shows how the RCS "gauge" can be predicted for theoretical objects.
