This newly revised and updated edition of the classic Artech House book, MTI and Pulsed Doppler Radar, offers you a complete and current presentation of the subject. You find expert radar design and analysis guidance, as well as clear descriptions and characteristics of modern Doppler radars that cannot be found in any other book. The second edition includes a new interactive CD-ROM with MATLAB software to help save you time with your challenging work in the field. From fundamental principles, Doppler radar waveform design and filtering, Doppler radar performance measures, and clutter properties and data - to optimum radar Doppler processing, MTI systems, pulsed Doppler systems, and special topics in Doppler radar systems, this comprehensive resource offers in depth discussions on a wide range of critical topics for your radar design projects. This detailed reference is supported with over 350 illustrations and more than 730 equations. CD-ROM Included: Contains time-saving MATLAB software that serves as a valuable tool for the analysis and design of MTI and Pulsed Doppler Radar. The disc also includes several full-color images that support key topics discussed in the book.
