Novel Radar Techniques and Applications presents the state-of-the-art in advanced radar, with emphasis on ongoing novel research and development and contributions from an international team of leading radar experts. Each section gives an overview of the latest research and perspectives of the future, and includes a number of chapters dedicated to specific techniques in conjunction with existing operational, experimental or conceptual applications.

Novel Radar Techniques and Applications Volume 1: Real Aperture Array Radar, Imaging Radar, and Passive and Multistatic Radar covers:

  • Real aperture array radar, including target parameter estimation and array radar features; robust direct data domain processing; and array radar operation management
  • Imaging radar, including VideoSAR imaging for real-time persistence; high-resolution wide-swath SAR; interferometric SAR imaging; space-based SAR-Ground moving target indication; 3D & tomographic SAR imaging; bi- and monostatic SAR-GMTI; multistatic and MIMO ISAR techniques; and focussing moving objects using the VSAR algorithm
  • Passive and multistatic radar, including bistatic clutter modeling; airborne passive radar; forward scatter radar; through -the -wall imaging radar; short-range passive radar potentialities; GNSS-based passive radar; passive radar with airborne receivers; multi-illuminator and multistatic passive radar; and passive MIMO radar networks.

Novel Radar Techniques and Applications Volume 2: Waveform Diversity and Cognitive Radar, and Target Tracking and Data Fusion covers:

  • Waveform diversity and cognitive radar, including holistic design of physical radar emissions; waveform design for spectral coexistence; adaptive OFDM waveform design for spatio-temporal-sparsity exploited STAP radar; applications of noise radar; bio-inspired radar techniques; concept of the intelligent radar network; clutter diversity; and cognitive radar management
  • Target tracking and data fusion, including posterior Cramér-Rao bounds for target tracking; tracking and fusion in log-spherical state space with application to collision avoidance and kinematic ranging; multistatic tracking for passive radar applications; radar-based ground surveillance; multiplatform radar surveillance for aerial and maritime surveillance; person tracking and data fusion for UWB radar applications; and sensor management for radar networks.

About the Editors

Richard Klemm has recently retired after a distinguished career at FGAN FHR (now Fraunhofer FHR), a research institute working in the areas defence and security, and decades of service to the radar community. In his spare time Richard Klemm is a passionate classical pianist.

Ulrich Nickel has recently retired after a career as head of the research group Data Fusion for Array Sensors of the Sensor Data and Information Fusion (SDF) department of Fraunhofer FKIE in Wachtberg, Germany.

Christoph H. Gierull is a Senior Scientist with Defence R&D Canada, Ottawa Research Centre assuming the duties of Group Leader, Space-based Radar as well as Adjunct Professor at Laval University, Quebec and Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, Canada.

Pierfrancesco Lombardo is Full Professor at University of Rome “La Sapienza”, where he leads the “Radar, Remote Sensing and Navigation” (RRSN) group. He is Technical Editor for Radar Systems of IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems.

Hugh Griffiths holds the THALES/Royal Academy Chair of RF Sensors in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at University College London, England.

Wolfgang Koch is head of the Sensor Data and Information Fusion (SDF) department at Fraunhofer FKIE, an institute of the Fraunhofer Society, the largest institution for applied research in Europe.

Book review

Richard being a passionate classical pianist, I see the two-volume book as a Symphony1 he has conceived, realized and directed with the wise and expert assistance of the five co-directors. The Authors being an orchestra of Professors each with their own specialty. Each author plays a piece of the symphony, which is in harmony across the seven parts in which the book is subdivided. The NRTA being a two-volume book with seven parts, it resembles a “super-Symphony”.
