Radar Resource Management (RRM) is vital for optimizing the performance of modern phased array radars, which are the primary sensor for aircraft, ships, and land platforms. Adaptive Radar Resource Management gives an introduction to radar resource management (RRM), presenting a clear overview of different approaches and techniques, making it very suitable for radar practitioners and researchers in industry and universities. Coverage includes: RRM’s role in optimizing the performance of modern phased array radars The advantages of adaptivity in implementing RRM The role that modelling and simulation plays in evaluating RRM performance Description of the simulation tool Adapt_MFR Detailed descriptions and performance results for specific adaptive RRM techniques

Key Features

  • The only book fully dedicated to adaptive RRM
  • A comprehensive treatment of phased array radars and RRM, including task prioritization, radar scheduling, and adaptive track update rates
  • Provides detailed knowledge of specific RRM techniques and their performance


Engineers and scientists who are radar practitioners and researchers in academia, industry or government

Zhen Ding
Zhen Ding received a bachelor degree, a M.S. degree and a Ph.D. degree in automatic control from North-western Polytechnic University (NPU), Xi'an, China, in 1986, 1989 and 1995. He was a lecturer and researcher at NPU from 1989 to 1995. Then he was a post-doctoral fellow in Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio, USA (1996-1997), and in McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (1998). He joined Raytheon Canada in Jan. 1999, where he was involved with the design, implementation and testing of radar trackers for marine radars and High Frequency Surface Wave Radars (HFSWR). Also involved during that time were tracker enhancements for Air Traffic Control (ATC) radar under wind farm environments. He has been with Radar Sensing and Exploitation Section, Defence R&D Canada, as a defence scientist since May 2007, where he conducts research on target tracking and radar resource management. He is one of the founding members of the Canadian Tracking and Fusion Group (CTFG).
