Radar and Electronic Warfare Principles for the Non-Specialist, 4th Edition teaches the essentials of radar and electronic warfare in a clear, consistent way. It distills the very complex, rich technologies of radar and EW into its fundamentals, tying them to the laws of nature on one end and to the most modern and complex systems on the other. This should be the first book selected to provide a solid foundation in both radar and EW.
This book is focused on imparting whole pieces of knowledge, developed with an evolutionary approach, and tied together with a consistent thread of logic through the radar and EW material. It starts with electromagnetic propagation, describes a radar system of the utmost simplicity, and derives the associated radar equation. Once the radar equation is available, the book enhances the meaning of each term in it and concept behind it, moving through target detection, antennas, measurements and tracking, radar cross section, and system applications in an orderly progression. Similarly, the book continues with an introduction to EW, moving through electronic support (ES), electronic attack (EA), and electronic protection (EP). The radar and EW material is consistent in both scope and depth.
Readers with a technical or business degree should be well prepared to understand the radar and EW concepts in this book. The overwhelming majority of these concepts are mathematically represented using algebra. Some concepts use trigonometry and a very select few use calculus. It is written specifically for those with little or no knowledge of radar and EW technologies to give them the ability to critique a first-order radar or EW system design or analysis.
