Now you can access the combined knowledge of 22 experts on aerospace radar systems with the Space-Based Radar Handbook. Exploring the topics critical to the design, implementation, and managerment of radar systems, the text also provides a comprehensive bibilioraphy for you to pursue more in-depth study in any specific area. The SBR Handbook provides first-time coverage of weather radar in space and describes the current state and future prospects for the use of orbiting radars for observation of clouds and precipitation. You'll gain insight into such existing U.S. and Soviet SBR systems as rendezvous radars, synthetic aperture radars, altimeters, and scatterometers. In examining such systems, the book considers design and performance trade-offs, rationale, orbits, space environment, thermal control, target radar cross section, and clutter and interference.
