Principles of Modern Radar: Advanced Techniques is a professional reference for practicing engineers that provides a stepping stone to advanced practice with in-depth discussions of the most commonly used advanced techniques for radar design. It will also serve advanced radar academic and training courses with a complete set of problems for students as well as solutions for instructors.

This book provides an introduction to advanced radar methods available, spanning the gamut of the most exciting radar capabilities, from exotic waveforms, to ultra-high resolution 2D and 3D imaging methods, complex adaptive inteference cancellation, multi-target tracking in dense scenarios and more.

The most up-to-date methods, such as multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) are covered. All of this material is presented with the same careful balance of quantitative rigor and qualitiative insight of Principles of Modern Radar: Basic Principles (SciTech - 2010)

William MelvinDr. William L. Melvin is Director of the Sensors and Electromagnetic Applications Laboratory (SEAL) at the Georgia Tech Research Institute and an Adjunct Professor in Georgia Tech’s Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. His specific expertise includes digital signal processing with application to RF sensors, including adaptive signal processing for aerospace radar detection of airborne and ground moving targets, radar applications of detection and estimation theory, electronic protection, SIGINT, and synthetic aperture radar. He has authored over 150 publications in his areas of expertise and holds three patents on adaptive radar technology. Dr. Melvin received the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Lehigh University in 1994, as well as the MSEE and BSEE degrees (with high honors) from this same institution in 1992 and 1989, respectively. He is also a distinguished graduate of the USAF ROTC Program.

James ScheerJames A. Scheer has been directly involved in radar R&D for 40 years. He is editor of the book Coherent Radar Performance Estimation, has authored chapters in five radar textbooks, and is an instructor in a variety of radar short courses, including Principles of Modern Radar.
