Whether you are a radar engineer looking to apply effective STAP(space-time adaptive processing) techniques to your system, or a non-radar specialist interested in important applications of multichannel adaptive filtering, this practical resource, based on a time-tested course taught in industry, government and academia, is essential reading. The book introduces you to basic STAP concepts and methods, placing emphasis on implementation in real-world systems. You find the analysis tools you need to assess the impact of STAP on a variety of important radar applications. A toolkit of STAP algorithms and implementation techniques allows you the flexibility of adapting the best methods to your application. From important factors affecting STAP performance, to reduced-rank and minimized sample support STAP, the book clearly explains critical topics in a manner that is easily understandable to anyone with a basic background in radar and signal processing. Moreover, this unique reference includes detailed descriptions of the latest developments in STAP research, helping you keep up with important trends in the industry.
