Principles of Modern Radar: Advanced Techniques is a professional reference for practicing engineers that provides a stepping stone to advanced practice with in-depth discussions of the most commonly used advanced techniques for radar design. It will also serve advanced radar academic and training courses with a complete set of problems for students as well as solutions for instructors.

This book provides an introduction to advanced radar methods available, spanning the gamut of the most exciting radar capabilities, from exotic waveforms, to ultra-high resolution 2D and 3D imaging methods, complex adaptive interference cancellation, multi-target tracking in dense scenarios and more.

The most up-to-date methods, such as multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) are covered. All of this material is presented with the same careful balance of quantitative rigor and qualitative insight of Principles of Modern Radar: Basic Principles (SciTech - 2010)

As with the Basic Principles textbook, SciTech has collected a cadre of volunteer expert reviewers from the worldwide radar community for this manuscript. Their extensive comments, corrections and insights will guarantee that this will be another “Community-Driven Book.”
