Numerous books have been written on Radar Systems and Radar Applications. A limited set of these books provides companion software. There is need for a comprehensive reference book that can provide the reader with hands-on-like experience. The ideal radar book, in my opinion, should serve as a conclusive, detailed, and useful reference for working engineers as well as a textbook for students learning radar systems analysis and design. This book must assume few prerequisites and must stand on its own as a complete presentation of the subject. Examples and exercise problems must be included. User friendly software that demonstrates the theory needs to be included. This software should be reconfigurable to allow different users to vary the inputs in order to better analyze their relevant and unique requirements, and enhance understanding of the subject.
Radar Systems Analysis and Design Using MATLAB® concentrates on radar fundamentals, principles, and rigorous mathematical derivations. It also provides the user with a comprehensive set of MATLAB1 5.0 software that can be used for radar analysis and/or radar system design. All programs will accept user inputs or execute using the default set of parameters. This book will serve as a valuable reference to students and radar engineers in analyzing and understanding the many issues associated with radar systems analysis and design. It is written at the graduate level. Each chapter provides all the necessary mathematical and analytical coverage required for good understanding of radar theory. Additionally, dedicated MATLAB functions/programs have been developed for each chapter to further enhance the understanding of the theory, and provide a source for establishing radar system design requirements. This book includes over 1190 equations and over 230 illustrations and plots. There are over 200 examples and end-of-chapter problems. A solutions manual will be made available to professors using the book as a text. The philosophy behind Radar Systems Analysis and Design Using MATLAB is that radar systems should not be complicated to understand nor difficult to analyze and design.
