This book provides a clear and systematic introduction to the basic concepts, foundational mathematics principles, and application of signals collection and supporting technologies. It describes the essential principles of signals collection and analysis for both tactical and commercial applications, and applies the foundational principles and concepts pertaining to the collection and exploitation of uncooperative signals of interest. You will be equipped with the basic concepts and skills necessary to manage and develop signals collection systems, and benefit from the practical, hands-on information you can confidently implement and apply. You will also find abundant references included to guide you further in the areas of signals collection. The book uniquely presents the fundamental mathematics of the collection and processing of signals in a manner easily understood by newcomers to the field, while practitioners will find it to be a practical, go-to desktop reference for signal analysis. This is an ideal, one-of-a-kind text for graduate students, analysts, managers, and others who need a rapid introduction to the diverse and growing field of signals analytics.
