This revised edition of the classic, Introduction to Electronic Defense Systems, offers a thorough, up-to-date survey of sophisticated weapon and electronic warfare (EW) systems, and covers all the latest technological advances in this rapidly-changing area. Brand new material includes deep explanation of latest radar techniques (Digital Receivers, SAR/SSAR/ISAR/DBS, LPI radar, etc), the latest advances in IR techniques (Rosette Scan seeker analysis, DIRCM, etc.) and the EW techniques (DRFM, Digital Receiver, New Passive Location systems, DRFM, Solid State technology, High Resolution Radar Jamming, etc.) and an introduction to Information Operations and Information Warfare.

You get a solid understanding of how sophisticated EW weapon systems work, and how these weapons can be intercepted and electronically jammed. From search and tracking radar, IR systems, and communication systems... to electronic intercept systems, countermeasures, and counter-countermeasures, the book explores a broad spectrum of defense equipment. It explains how these systems operate, the advantages and drawbacks of each system, and the theories on which these systems are based. This authoritative resource includes 320 illustrations and 360 equations that support key topics throughout the book.
