This state-of-the-art edition of a radar classic brings you up-to-date on new developments in clutter measurement and modeling and features a wealth of new information not found in other currently available books. Authored by a recognized expert in the field, the book covers everything from basic concepts of radar reflectivity to space-time clutter amplitude and bistatic clutter. New radar engineers will find this to be a valuable, all-encompassing, well-illustrated survey of radar reflectivity fundamentals. Veteran engineers and systems designers will appreciate the book 's new coverage of: effects of frequency agility, spatial averages for terrain, graphs from GIT clutter models, land and sea echo at extremely low grazing angles, compound statistics including the K and the Rayleigh modulated by Wiebull distributions, super sea echo events and sea spikes, bistatic land and sea clutter, and more.

  • Maurice W. Long Maurice W. Long is a private radar consultant specializing in small target detection. While at Georgia Institute of Technology, he managed the development of a number of radar systems and held a variety of positions including principal research ingineer, professor of electrical engineering, and director of the Engineering Experiment Station (now Georgia Tech Research Institute). His university degrees include a BEE, an MS in Physics, and a PhD from Georgia Institute of Technology and an MSEE from the University of Kentucky. On leave in 1996, he served as a liaison scientist with the U.S. Office of Naval Research, London, England. He is an IEEE Life Fellow, a member of the Academy of Electromagnetics, and his biography is profiled in various references including Who's Who in America.
