Beginning with a systematic introduction to the fundamental principles of microwave radar, this new book delivers an extensive discussion of radar imaging, giving you the most comprehensive general-purpose imaging radar book available. Moreover, you get the latest information on image superresolution, automatic target recognition, moving target indication, and space-time adaptive processing (STAP).

Whether you're a radar novice or experienced professional, this is an essential reference that features the theory and practical application of formulas you use in radar design every day.

The book helps you...

> Understand the resolution and ambiguity limits in linear-FM radar waveforms such as those found in most synthetic aperture radars (SAR)

> Achieve superresolution or sidelobe-reduction in SAR imagery

> Determine minimum detectable velocity (MDV) using ground-moving-target indication (GMTI) radar, and the criterion for low-probability of intercept (LPI) radar success

> Understand how deep ground-penetrating radar can see, and how SAR and ISAR modes can be interleaved on an airborne platform

With this book, you're taken step-by-step through the development of modern airborne microwave radar, up to the cutting edge of emergent technologies, including new results on theoretical 2D and 3D ISAR point-spread functions (PSF) and current discussions concerning dechirp/deskew SAR processing, layover in SAR images, vibrating targets, foliage penetration, image quality parameters, and more. Plus, for students of electrical engineering, physics, and radar, this book provides the best source for basic airborne radar understanding,as well as a broad introduction to the field of radar imaging.
