The important and fascinating topics of radar enjoy an extensive audience in industry and government, but they deserve more attention in undergraduate education to better prepare graduating engineers to meet the demands of modern mankind. Radar is not only one of the major applications of electronics and electromagnetic communications, but it is also a mature scientific discipline with significant theoretical and mathematical foundations that warrants an intellectual and educational challenge.
Fundamental Principles of Radar is a textbook providing a first exposure to radar principles. It provides a broad concept underlying the basic principle of operations of most existing radar systems and maintains a good balance of mathematical rigor suitable to convince readers without losing their interest. The purpose of the book is to provide an extensive exposition of the techniques currently used for radar system design, analysis, and evaluation. It presents a comprehensive set of radar principles, including all features of modern radar applications, with their underlying derivations using simple mathematics. The coverage is limited to the main concepts of radar in order to present them in a systematic, organized fashion. Topics are treated not as abstruse and esoteric to the point of incomprehensibility. Every attempt is made to distill the very complex and rich technology of radar into its fundamentals. Emphasis is given on clarity without sacrificing rigor and completeness, thus making the book broad enough to satisfy a variety of backgrounds and interests. Thorough documentation provides an unusual degree of completeness for a textbook at this level, with interesting and sometimes thought-provoking content to make the subject even more appealing.
