Featuring critical material never before available in Western resources, this invaluable millimeter-wave radar book delivers in-depth coverage of both theory and experimental data on targets and clutter from land, sea, and precipitation. For the first time, you are provided with measured data from Russian sources on radar characteristics of explosions, turbine exhausts, and sonic perturbations in target wakes. The book gives you experimentally tested algorithms for land, sea, and precipitation clutter derivation, along with methods for land and sea clutter modeling. You find detailed discussions on a wide range of important topics, including land and sea backscattering for small and extremely small grazing angles, multichannel methods of land remote sensing, and clutter rejection in radar systems. Supported with over 280 equations and more than 130 illustrations, this essential reference provides an excellent summary of the interactions between radar waves and the entire class of targets and clutter affecting operation of radar in the upper microwave and millimeter-wave bands.
