The Handbook of Radar Measurement gives you everything you need to estimate the measurement accuracy of any radar system before you begin design and construction. The most important radar measurement book available, Handbook of Radar Measurement allows you - system designers and engineers - to develop the optimum compromise between performance and cost complexity before committing your radar system to construction and testing. Handbook of Radar Measurement provides hundreds of equations, theories, curve diagrams, and tables, enabling you to identify the principal sources of error in radar designs and estimate the accuracy of radar range, Doppler frequency, and angle measurements. Handbook of Radar Measurement features: a summarized, unified introduction to the classic radar measurement works of Roger Manasse, Peter Swerling, and Merrill Skolnik; radar measurement theories presented in a consistent format using uniform notations and symbols, with a mathematical level understandable to all practicing radar engineers; a presentation of generalized procedures to evaluate errors caused by interfering radar echoes, and unwanted signals other than random noise; a radar system analysis providing a complete description of errors as a function of range and elevation angle for each type of target; seven appendices including data on antenna pattern, aperture illumination, and the effects of atmospheric conditions on radar measurement. Handbook of Radar Measurement not only simplifies for you the task of radar system design and analysis, it will give you the most accurate prediction and description techniques for radar performance.
Introduction to Measurement Theory. Angular Measurement in Noise. Range and Doppler Measurement In Noise. Multiple-Signal Problems in Measurement. Target-Induced Errors. Discrete Processes in Measurement. Radar Error Analysis. Appendices: Antenna Patterns and Illumination Functions, Waveform Analogies, Data Filtering and Smoothing, Atmospheric Propagation Errors, Tables of Functions.
