The Micro-Doppler Effect in Radar

The Micro-Doppler Effect in Radar

By (author): Victor C. Chen
Copyright: 2011
Pages: 340
ISBN: 9781608070589

This highly practical resource provides you with thorough working knowledge of the micro-Doppler effect in radar, including its principles, applications and implementation with MATLAB codes. The book presents code for simulating radar backscattering from targets with various motions, generating micro-Doppler signatures, and analyzing the characteristics of targets. You find detailed descriptions of the physics and mathematics of the Doppler and micro-Doppler effect. Moreover, you learn how to derive rigid and non-rigid body motion induced micro-Doppler effect in radar scattering. The book provides a wide range of clear examples, including an oscillating pendulum, a spinning and precession heavy top, rotating rotor blades of a helicopter, rotating wind-turbine blades, a person walking with swinging arms and legs, a flying bird, and movements of quadruped animals. DVD Included: Contains time-saving MATLAB source codes for simulation, radar data processing, and micro-Doppler signature analysis to help you with your challenging projects in the field.
