Here's an innovative hands-on book on time-frequency transforms for radar imaging and signal analysis. It teaches you: more efficient ways to extract dispersive scattering features; detect and extract weak signals in noise; form clear radar images; estimate parameters and perform motion compensation; detect and track moving targets in the synthetic aperture radar; and analyze vibration and rotation induced micro-Doppler. This unique resource introduces a new image formation algorithm based on time-frequency-transforms, showing its advantage over the more conventional Fourier-based image formation. Referenced with over 170 equations and 80 illustrations, the book presents new algorithms that help improve the result of radar imaging and signal processing. Moreover, the authors discuss future trends in time-frequency to analyze micro-Doppler, and provide you with a newly developed time-frequency approach to radar signal and image processing to help you solve problems associated with conventional approaches.
