This text includes a uniform treatment of radar and detection theory as it applies to modern integrated radar systems. Radars can be considered as the target detection device of an overall target detection and tracking system. Within such a system, a digital computer is an integral part; therefore a discussion of radar theory and its applications is supplemented by computer implementation methods. Instructional problems and their solutions are included in each chapter, facilitating both individual study and classroom use.
