Description

Advanced Array Systems, Applications and RF Technologies adopts a holistic view of arrays used in radar, electronic warfare, communications, remote sensing and radioastronomy. Radio frequency (RF) and intermediate frequency (IF) signal processing is assuming a fundamental importance, owing to its increasing ability to multiply a system's capabilities in a cost-effective manner. This book comprehensively covers the important front-end RF subsystems of active phased arrays, so offering array designers new and exciting opportunities in signal processing.

Key Features

  • Provides an up to date record of existing systems from different applications
  • Explores array systems under development
  • Bridges the gap between textbook coverage of idealized phased arrays and practical knowledge of working phased arrays
  • Recognises the significance of cost to the realization of phased arrays
  • Discusses future advances in the field that promise to deliver even more affordable arrays ['intelligent' or self-focussing/-cohering arrays]

Readership

Engineers and scientists in the radar/antenna industry and researchers and graduate students in electronic engineering
