Radar is a technology used in several facets of modern life, with many different civilian and military applications. Although radars have been around since 1904, much work is still spent today designing, building, testing, and implementing new radars and developing new and more powerful radar signal processing techniques. Radar signal processing is still a very active area of research. Nowadays, there has been substantial interest in noise radar over a wide range of applications, such as through wall surveillance, detection, tracking, Doppler estimation, polarimetry, interferometry, ground-penetrating or subsurface profiling, synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging, inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) imaging, foliage penetration imaging, etc. One of the major advantages of the noise radar is its essential immunity from congestion, detection, and external interference.
Signal Processing in Noise Waveform Radar brings together comprehensive studies dealing with the emerging technology of noise waveform radar and its signal processing aspects. It discusses the properties, difficulties and potential of noise radar systems, primarily for low-power and short-range civil applications. The contributions of modern signal processing techniques to making noise radar practical are emphasized, and application examples are given.
This book covers a diversity of categories in radar signal processing, including radar optimization and system design valuable for both practicing engineers and engineering students.
