Abstract:

The book examines the principles of radar, methods of coordinate measurement and scanning and circuits for radar stations of three types with an operator, a continuous computer installation and a digital computer. It presents the characteristics of radar signals with a consideration of the statistical regularities that occur in the reflection of radio waves their propagation, and the presence of noise on the signal. The book describes methods of building optimal and near optimal receivers considering statistical, spatial and frequency time characteristics of the signal and interference. The book estimates the maximum capacities of radar in detecting and measuring target coordinates. It gives a statistical evaluation of target position or trajectory on the basis of radar measurement data. In conclusion, the book describes methods of combating various types of interference and the operating principles of passive radar systems.
