Modern Radar Systems, 2nd Edition (Artech House Radar by Hamish Meikle

By Hamish Meikle

This revised and up-to-date variation to the preferred Artech residence e-book, "Modern Radar Systems", bargains pros entire and present insurance of the topic, together with new fabric on serious facets similar to accuracy, solution, and convolution and correlation. The e-book beneficial properties greater than 540 illustrations that provide a better figuring out of varied waveforms, and different - and 3-dimensional services, to aid engineers extra adequately learn radar approach functionality. the consequences of pulse shaping on transmitter balance and spectra are mentioned - a subject matter that's turning into progressively more very important to modern engineers. Radar practitioners get a couple of serious atmospheric versions to assist them with their difficult paintings. each one bankruptcy ends with a functionality part, displaying the influence of that specific point at the entire radar approach funds for variety, accuracy, and balance.

Sample text

The diagrams in Chapter 12 give the signal-to-noise ra tio required for detection with one or more echoes from the scatterer, called hits. Surv eillance rada rs, generally speaking, do not observe their environment by staring at it. Instead they probe in the darkness as we would, handlamp in hand. The time that the objec t is illuminated times the pulse repetition freq uency gives the number o f hits, which is impo rtant in radars th at use integratio n. A radar must be able to distinguish between the different objects that return echo signals.

In trials of three-dimen sional stacked beam rad ars with an aircra ft flying at a constant height, the resulting distribution was found experimentally to be Gaussian. The timing error (jitte r) is normally small, comp ared with oth er factors whe n all pulses are derived from the same, stable frequency source, generally the stable oscillator (STALO). 4), which is critical so that radar instability does not limit the quality of the signal processing. Modern moving target detector signal processors demand a rock stable clock and stable trigger system.

3 ORDER OF LINEAR PROCESSING Just as x + y = y + x and xy = yx ,additive and multiplicative processes may take place in any order so long as they are linear. In contrast, subtraction and selection can destroy information that may no longer be recovered. 9) is the carrier frequency amplitude; is the carrier frequency; is the carrier phase; is the modulation frequency amplitude; is the modulation frequency; is the modulation phase; is the time in seconds. The modulated wave consists of two sidebands at fc – fm and fc + fm .
