Norwood, MA -
today announced the publication
Introduction to Radar with Python and MATLAB®,
by Andy Harrison. This comprehensive resource provides readers with the tools necessary
to perform analysis of various waveforms for use in radar systems. It provides information
about how to produce synthetic aperture (SAR) images by giving a tomographic formulation
and implementation for SAR imaging. Tracking filter fundamentals, and each parameter
associated with the filter and how each affects tracking performance are also presented.
Various radar cross section measurement techniques are covered, along with waveform
selection analysis through the study of the ambiguity function for each particular
waveform from simple linear frequency modulation (LFM) waveforms to more complicated
The text includes the Python tool suite, which allows the reader to analyze and
predict radar performance for various scenarios and applications. Also provided
are MATLAB® scripts corresponding to the Python tools. The software includes a user-friendly
graphical user interface (GUI) that provides visualizations of the concepts being
covered. Users have full access to both the Python and MATLAB source code to modify
for their application. With examples using the tool suite are given at the end of
each chapter, this text gives readers a clear understanding of how important target
scattering is in areas of target detection, target tracking, pulse integration,
and target discrimination.
Introduction to Radar with Python and MATLAB® is available now from Artech House,
a leading publisher of books for professionals in high-technology industries.
