Here's the first comprehensive radar evaluation handbook since the U.S. Navy's manual of the 1950's. This book describes the steps involved in the evaluation of radar design and performance without complicated math. It explains basic engineering principles in language easily understood by both engineers and non-technical personnel, and contains a comprehensive discussion of the complex factors involved in the radar design process. The book examines evaluation models made at several sites dependant on the status of the radar program and the resources available to the evaluator. These resources include analysis, simulation, test at manufacturer's plant, field test, and extrapolation from field test, using both analysis and simulation. Models of radar performance, target parameters, and environment conditions presented in Radar Evaluation Handbook provide you with the guidance to identify and evaluate areas requring test, and to determine the actual test conditions with sufficient accuracy to decide the critical issues of radar performance.
Introduction and Radar Fundamentals. Radar System Design. Radar Range Equation. Target Detection. Targets and Interference. Radar Antennas. Waveforms and Signal Processing. Radar Propagation. Search and Target Acquisition. Tracking Radar Systems. Radar Error Analysis. Radar ECM Vulnerability and ECCM. Radar Evaluation Practices. Appendices.
