Distributed Sensor Arrays: Localization

Prabhakar S. Naidu
September 18, 2017

Localization of transmitters and receiving sensors is achieved by measuring radiation emitted by a source to a set of sensors, which are either on a definite pattern, known as an array, or one randomly located at irregular points, known as a distributed sensor array. This book discusses how to...

Radar Detection Theory of Sliding Window Processes

Graham Weinberg
September 14, 2017

Constant false alarm rate detection processes are important in radar signal processing. Such detection strategies are used as an alternative to optimal Neyman-Pearson based decision rules, since they can be implemented as a sliding window process running on a radar range-Doppler map. This book...
